Classified somewhere between a tooth-colored filling and a full crown, an inlay or onlay can restore a damaged or decayed tooth. Used on molars and pre-molars, an inlay covers the indented middle of a tooth while onlays cover the tooth's rounded, upper edges. Like dental crowns and fillings, onlays and inlays can be created with a variety of materials, such as metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Before they decide how to treat your teeth at Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL, Drs. Jared and Catherine Young can help you gain a better understanding of crowns, fillings, onlays, and inlays.

After applying local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, we will begin by cleaning out areas of decay. Other methods of sedation can be used in case you experience fear or a strong gag reflex. When the enamel is cleaned, impressions will be made from the tooth. Once your restoration is ready, we will carefully set and then bond it on your tooth. We will then polish the edges or adjust the fit so your tooth is properly coated and feels right. You might feel mild discomfort, inflammation, or sensitivity for several days once your inlay or onlay is placed. Please contact Bright Young Smiles should you have any concerns following your treatment. With proper care and maintenance, it should last for many years before needing to be repaired or replaced.

A big shout out to the staff at bright young smiles. I woke up in pain and I had not been to their office in 7 years, but they got me in same day. Dr. Gaffney was amazing. He referred me to the best Endodontics office in Boca. I will always use Bright Young Smile for the rest of my life. Thank you

Going to the dentist has been something I try to put off in the past. However, whenever I come to Bright Young Smiles I can stay there for hours— literally! Dr. Catherine Young and her assistant Rose spent several hours on my latest dental work, filling in cavities and adding bonding. I couldn’t be happier with the results, I feel so much better about my smile now! They made the whole experience extremely comfortable for me, offering a blanket and letting me catch up on my latest Netflix show. They utilize the latest tech gadgets on the market for dentistry so you don’t feel like all these crazy tools are in your mouth. Which in my opinion usually tends to feel uncomfortable hence why I’ve avoided the dentist in the past. Dr. Catherine Young also focuses on cosmetic dentistry and was able to help correct the balance of my smile via lip fillers. She has an artistic eye and takes the time to really focus and perfect where she is injecting in order to make your smile perfectly balanced. I’ve had filler in the past and usually it’s a quick appointment where I felt that they didn’t take the time to consider the structure of my face. Dr. Young was the complete opposite and was so gentle whenever she would inject. Would highly recommend this procedure to be done if you want the perfect smile!

When my friend recommended Bright Young Smiles I never in a million years expected to have the experience My son and I had with them. Dr. Catherine Young has not only helped me with my TMJ problems but I swear to you she has a halo on her head. She is not just really good at what she does but she is so compassionate and kind and held my hand while I was going through a difficult time. Its not hard to see why everyone in her staff is happy in the office. Everyone is very friendly and want to make you feel very comfortable while you’re there. My whole family will start going there now. :)
