Inlays and Onlays in Orangeburg, NY

If you have a cavity that is too big for a traditional filling but not big enough to justify a full crown, we may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. Used on molars and pre-molars, a dental inlay covers the indented center of a tooth while an onlay covers the tooth's upper, rounded edges. Like dental crowns and fillings, onlays and inlays can be created with different materials, including porcelain and composite resin. You can learn all about inlays and onlays, as well as our other dental restoration options, by scheduling an appointment with our team at Dental Arts of Rockland in Orangeburg, NY. We'll perform a comprehensive oral assessment and help you determine the best steps to take to preserve the health and appearance of your smile.

Before starting, we'll apply a numbing agent to your gums to reduce any discomfort. We can also provide deeper sedation if you need it for any anxiety. When you're ready, we will start your inlay or onlay treatment by removing the decayed parts of your tooth and cleaning it out. When the tooth is cleaned, we'll make digital impressions of it using our practice's state-of-the-art intraoral scanner. These impressions will be sent to a dental lab, which will construct your restoration to fit the unique shape of your tooth. For the time being, we'll apply a temporary cover over the affected tooth. Once your restoration is ready, we will carefully place and then bond it onto your tooth before polishing it for a more natural fit and feel.

Perfect combination of art and science. Dr Gellis is kind and very professional. He really knows his stuff and he makes an art of it. He’s quick and accurate. Combining that with the terrific staff makes a wonderful experience. So great that I recommended my spouse and he also had a great experience. We’re so glad we found Dr Gellis.

Dr. Gellis and his staff made me feel at ease and recommended a treatment plan that was tailored to my needs. I typically have some anxiety when going to the dentist , due to the sounds of the machinery. However, Dr. Gellis and his staff offered a laundry list of complimentary amenities such as a warm neck pillow, headphones, and warm hand wipe to put my anxieties at ease. They were even able to move up my appointment so that I could receive care sooner and did not need to prolong having my crown installed! Thank you so much for your thoughtful attention to detail and patient centered care approach! I'm already looking forward to my 6m cleaning!

Being a physician who was trained by international leaders in patient care, I expect any care that I receive personally to be of the highest standard, just as I would do. Dr. Gellis and his team are at the top of the pyramid, not only from a technical standpoint, but also in how they treat patients. This is the place to go for the best dentistry available.

Kind and friendly caring atmosphere. .I actually look forward to going to the dentist. But it’s even much more than that. I’ve had bad experiences in the past and because of that have neglected my teeth . They helped me through my anxiety and treated me as if I was someone special. And that’s just it . Every patient to them is special. And every person who works there from Dr Gellis ,Collen , Megan , Randy , whoever you deal with is caring and kind. I wish all medical practices cared the same way.
