When Dr. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental in Cary repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Apex, NC, Morrisville, or Holly Springs.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Cary Family Dental. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At Cary Family Dental, the inlays and onlays we place for our Apex, NC and Morrisville patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Allan Acton has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.

Are stain resistant
Do not cause tooth sensitivity
