Composite Fillings, Inlays & Onlays

Tooth decay and physical damage can affect your teeth, leaving them sensitive and susceptible to further damage and infection. Peninsula Dental Associates provides composite fillings, inlays, and onlays to restore your smile.

You’ll Barely Notice Composite Fillings

When a cavity develops in one of your teeth, it’s vital to seal it to prevent further decay. A filling restores the tooth’s surface, preventing bacteria from continuing to wear away at the affected area. Eliminating the crevice left by the cavity also means that you can brush more effectively, with fewer hiding spots for bacteria.

At Peninsula Dental Associates, we provide the latest standard in composite fillings. In contrast to traditional metal amalgam fillings, this technique relies on composite resin that is cured and hardened with a UV light.

Composite resin delivers the same lasting protection as traditional dental fillings but without the conspicuous silver coloring. We match the composite to the natural shade of your teeth, so any filling will be practically unnoticeable when you smile.

Inlays and Onlays Restore Serious Damage

Fillings are highly effective at resolving cavities and minor tooth decay, but if decay has spread, you need more substantial protection. Inlays and onlays fix the entire chewing surface of the tooth, with onlays also restoring the cusp. They improve the function, health, and look of teeth that have severe damage or decay.

At Peninsula Dental Associates, we use the latest 3D printing technology to produce Class II onlays and inlays in-house. This technology increases the speed of your overall treatment process and ensures an accurate custom fit for your restoration.

Take Action to Protect Your Teeth

If you have a tooth with decay or physical damage, leaving it untreated can be a serious mistake. Tooth decay only continues to progress over time. Eventually, it can reach the inner layers of the tooth and cause an infection. At that point, you need root canal treatment or extraction.

Composite fillings, inlays, and onlays prevent that from happening. The team at Peninsula Dental Associates will determine the proper treatment for your needs, whether that includes fillings, inlays, onlays, or more advanced restoration options in Foster City, San Mateo, Redwood Shores, Belmont, and surrounding areas.

Just wanted to thank Dr. Martin Phandl and his wonderful staff for making my recent dental appointment experiences the best they could be. Dr. Phandl couldn't have been more kind or patient. He made sure there was ZERO pain or discomfort, and that I was doing okay throughout my procedures.  They were such easy dental appointments, which for me, is saying a lot!! I was also very impressed with the new technology he uses. The handheld oral scanner was painless and showed 3D images in amazing detail. I would highly recommend Dr. Phandl.

Dr. Phandl is very easy to talk to and walks you through the process of what he is doing. After my recent visit he showed me the before and after shots of my tooth which was an absolute treat. I would recommend Dr. Phandl to anyone that wants a great dentist and the best service.

Dr. Phandl and his staff provide excellent service. I needed a cracked crown replaced and he was able to do so right away, all in house using CAD software and a 3D printer to create and install the replacement crown. Amazing care - thank you.
