Acacia Dental Helps Community Understand The Cosmetic Treatment Inlays and Onlays

Acacia Dental Group, a Phillip, ACT based dental clinic, is reaching out to share information about the cosmetic treatment inlays and dental onlays. For more than 30 years, the clinic has been the trusted dental provider for residents of Phillip and the surrounding Canberra communities.

Inlays were traditionally used instead of fillings to replace a small amount of tooth structure loss due to decay. Like fillings, inlays fit inside the tooth, but were originally made of gold. Today, they are used for the same purpose but are made of a tooth-colored material such as ceramic/porcelain or special dental composite. Onlays fit inside the tooth as well, but they also extend onto the chewing surface of a back tooth to replace one or more cusps. While both dental inlays and dental onlays experience wear and tear and may eventually need replacement, they more often than not have a very long life — as much as 10-30 years.

According to Acacia Dental Group, porcelain inlays and tooth-colored restorations (onlays) create teeth fillings that are not only a beautiful (or unnoticeable) cosmetic treatment but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies, as opposed to silver/gold inlays and onlays that may have been used historically.

The dental clinic explains that there are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin onlays are bonded to the teeth, creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger. Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for the gums. Acacia Dental Group also replaces silver and other fillings with a tooth colored restoration, for those who have older fillings, without any hassle or multiple appointments. This will allow people who have older fillings to restore their teeth to a more natural look and feel while also making them both stronger and more protected.

Dr. Sirisha Yalamanchili of Acacia Dental Group says, “We are a privately-owned family practice that has been around since the ‘70s.

Acacia Dental Group has established itself as a trustworthy dental clinic in the community. On the Google platform, they have a prominent rating of 4.2 Stars. In a recent review, Vi Le writes, “Very helpful and understanding receptionist on the phone and even better in person. Dr. Mallik kindly helped my son free from pain and discomfort, free of charge, on a Saturday when our usual dentist and actually most dental practices in Woden are not available. Thank you for your kindness and effective service.”

Meanwhile in another review, Ying Kang writes, “Last Sunday, my tooth was in a lot of pain, and my dentist's office — Acacia Dental Group — was closed on the weekend, so I went to see an emergency dentist for some medications to relieve the pain. The next day I went back to Acacia. The friendly receptionist was able to fit me in on the same day, and the dentist was professional, caring, and patiently explained things in detail to me. I am happy with the service provided and would like to recommend Acacia Dental Group to anyone who needs to see a dentist.”
