Dr. Luu of Gentle Care Dental of San Gabriel Valley focuses on two major aspects of dentistry: general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. With every procedure, she determines which solutions will be of benefit for the patient for long-term dental health as well as aesthetics. Everything is done with cosmetics in mind, and this applies to all patients and procedures.

Sometimes there are situations in which a patient has a severe cavity in a tooth. The cavity may be too big for a simple filling, but not big enough to require a root canal or dental crown. In situations such as these, Dr. Luu will typically suggest an inlay or an onlay.

Inlays and onlays are restorations that are made to fit the area of a tooth that needs to be replaced. It is fabricated to fit into or over the tooth to fill a cavity or crack that may have occurred. It is a very conservative way to address certain dental situations. Inlays and onlays may be made of either amalgam or porcelain. Porcelain is more cosmetic, while amalgam may be less expensive. When the need for an inlay or onlay arises, Dr. Luu will discuss with her patient the options available and what to expect from each restoration and material.

There are situations where dental fillings or dental crowns may be best, and Dr. Luu will examine the patient to determine which solution is best for the situation.
