A more conservative repair option for your smile.

Repair Your Smile

An inlay or onlay may offer a conservative repair option for areas of decay on the chewing surfaces of teeth. At Artistic Smiles, we use tooth-colored materials, called composites, directly on the tooth with an adamant bond.

This material replaces decayed tooth enamel with a white filling. Think of it as a puzzle piece that perfectly fits the contours of your tooth.

Restoring Your Natural-Looking Smile

A Natural Look

Inlays and onlays are larger than fillings but smaller than crowns. At our Longmont dentist office, Dr. Goldtrap can prevent the need for a dental crown by only removing the areas of tooth decay and restoring the appearance and functionality of the tooth with an inlay or onlay that perfectly mimics your tooth anatomy. This will restore integrity and bite pressure to your mouth.

Modern Techniques

With modern dental materials and bonding techniques, tooth-colored materials make dental restorations imperceptible.

You’ll be amazed at how natural they look and feel. You may even forget you have one.


Artistic Smiles is one of the best dentists I’ve been to. The staff is friendly, attentive, and great at what they do. They really care about the health of my teeth.

A good dentist's office is good when the whole team is good. You have to have a good experience with the dentist, the hygienists, and the office team. This is why I love Artistic Smiles. EVERYONE there is excellent, kind, and great at what they do, which is absolutely what you want from your dental experience.
