Inlays and Onlays
If your teeth are decaying or your fillings are failing, Dr. Bonilla can help. Inlays and oOnlays are ceramics molded to match the shape of your tooth.
If a majority of your tooth is unharmed, Dr. Bonilla can apply an inlay to help protect the healthy portions of your tooth. Onlays, on the other hand, cover the edge of an affected tooth, and they are used when a majority of the tooth is damaged.
When an inlay or onlay is placed, Dr. Bonilla will take an impression of your tooth and use that to create the custom ceramic. If you have an existing filling, Dr. Bonilla will remove the filling before taking the impression and placing the inlay or onlay. In order to enhance your current smile, the inlay or onlay will be created to match the color of a natural tooth. After being placed, inlays and onlays are not only aesthetically pleasing, they are strong, durable, and functional.

Teeth and/or Implant Supported Crowns and Bridges
If your teeth are becoming weak, are slowly deteriorating, or are missing, please contact Bonilla Dental Arts today to learn more about crowns and bridges. Dr. Bonilla can help fix your weakened, missing, or imperfect teeth by placing a crown (an artificial tooth made of porcelain or other biocompatible materials) around a damaged tooth or affixed to a dental implant. He can also enhance your smile and/or restore your chewing abilities by designing the proper foundation and restoration of your missing or non-functional teeth structures.
Additionally, Dr. Bonilla, a prosthodontic specialist, can use crowns and bridges to treat several oral disorders, including complex malocclusion and severe attrition, which can help improve mouth function, comfort, speech, and overall all oral aesthetics.

Veneers and Direct Veneers
Porcelain veneers are long-lasting cosmetic restoration applied during a brief, pain-free procedure. At Bonilla Dental Arts in Annandale, Dr. Bonilla can use porcelain veneers to quickly enhance the color, size, and shape of your teeth in as little as two appointments. In addition to offering a simple appearance solution, veneers are as durable as your natural teeth and stain-resistant. Veneers offer users additional benefits, including:
- They are strong
- They offer an alternative treatment choice
- They are durable and long-lasting
- They take less time to prepare
Direct veneers can be used to enhance your smile by reducing the appearance of tooth stains, correcting chips or erosion in the teeth, and closing gaps between the teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, direct veneers can be placed in just one visit at Bonilla Dental Arts. While not as strong as traditional veneers, direct veneers can be an effective and long-lasting option for many people.
When properly placed by your dental professional, veneers and direct veneers will quickly help you see a beautiful, radiant smile once again. For more information about veneers, contact Bonilla Dental Arts today.
