Dental inlays and onlays combine the benefits of tooth-colored fillings and crowns for teeth that have seen significant damage or decay (but not so much that a full crown is needed). Used on premolars and molars, an inlay covers the indented center of a tooth while an onlay covers the tooth's rounded, upper edges. Like fillings and crowns, onlays and inlays can be made in several materials, including metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Dr. Raju Dhariwal is eager to work with Elk Grove, CA patients to help them understand fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays so they can make the best choice about how to treat their teeth at Camden Dental Care.

To start your treatment, a member of our team will apply a numbing gel to your gums. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Dhariwal will begin by cleaning out any decay from inside the cavity. If you are particularly anxious about dental treatment or have a strong gag reflex, we can go over other sedation methods to ensure you are relaxed throughout your appointment. Once the tooth is cleaned, impressions will be made and sent to a lab where your custom restoration will be constructed. In the meantime, a temporary cover will be placed on the tooth to protect it from further harm and allow you to eat and talk normally. As soon as your restoration is ready, Dr. Dhariwal will carefully set and bond it to your tooth. He may polish the edges or adjust the fit so your tooth is suitably covered and feels comfortable.

My dentist of 22 years recently retired so we have to find a new one. Camden was recommended by one of my bffs and I’m glad she did. Office and their equipments are quite modern, whole place is neat and clean, and most all the whole staff is very pleasant, very helpful and welcoming, they make you feel at home including Dr. D. The best part - it’s close to home now, no need to drive to downtown Sacramento.
