Dear patients and friends,
We have good news! We have decided to stay in our Sylvan Highlands location and make this space our permanent home. We’re thankful that this location is only 8 minutes from our old office. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns, or are wondering when you can be seen. For all the patients who stayed with us through the challenge of recovering from the fire, thank you. We will always be thankful for your support during this time.

We are always excited to meet new patients so please reach out to us if you are looking for a new dental home. To longtime patients and other professionals who refer their family and friends to us, thank you for your support and confidence. Whether you are looking for routine dental care or have a question about a dental procedure, please reach out to us, we are happy to help.

We’re excited to continue to serve you and your families in this next chapter.

Sincerely,

Dr. Tom Pollard and Dr. Jill Pollard

Inlays & Onlays


Dental inlays and onlays by dentist in Portland, OR.Inlays and onlays are used to restore portions of the tooth, or to strengthen a tooth. They are alternatives to using fillings or a crown to restore the integrity of the tooth.

Inlays


When there is only partial damage to your tooth, an inlay can be bonded inside the remaining tooth structure. Traditionally, gold is the material of choice for this type of restoration, and although this is available, most of our dental patients prefer the more natural look that ceramic provides.

Onlays


Onlays are used to restore a portion of the biting cusp of a tooth or to restore the strength of a tooth. Instead of removing healthy tooth structure for a crown placement, an onlay can be used as a more conservative restoration.

Sometimes onlays are referred to as "inside crowns." That is a good description, as it describes the strengthening process that an onlay creates for the tooth. At Pollard Family Dentistry, we can place onlays when possible to lessen the amount of healthy tooth removed, compared to traditional crowns. Research has shown that the less you reduce a tooth, the better it will survive long-term, and our goal is to provide you with healthy teeth for life.
