    Dental Implants and Onlays

    When more than half of a tooths biting surface is damaged, a dentist can use an inlay or onlay to restore a tooth back to function and health.

    They can be made from either porcelain or gold and are bonded to the damaged area of a tooth. An inlay is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth, whereas an onlay extends over one or more of the cusps of the tooth. Traditionally, gold has been used for inlays and onlays. In recent years, with advanced technology, ceramic (or porcelain) has become the material of choice because of the natural appearance, strength and the ability to bond directly to the tooth using high strength resins or cements.

    The staff at Gisborne Dental are great to work with. They are helpful and patient with children that don't like the dentists. For our family it has been a great place to get everything done. From jaw widening to braces.

    Bill, thank you for your informative consultation followed by a root canal extraction and bone graft.. I hate the dentist - absolutely have high levels of anxiety and panic but I couldn’t have asked for a better man to do the job he’s understanding, quick and his work was outstanding. You cant put a price on excellent effective work I’m completely satisfied. Bill has an abundance of experience and that’s why I trusted him so much - Thank you so much.
