Porcelain inlay and onlays


Dental "fillings" can be unsightly. Large fillings can weaken teeth, making them prone to breakage. Porcelain or gold inlays and onlays offer an alternative to traditional silver or tooth coloured fillings.

Inlays and onlays are very precise, custom laboratory made restorations that are bonded to the tooth with very strong materials. They offer the best results in restoring dental cavities. Porcelain inlays and onlays are much stronger than in office fillings because they are made in a laboratory out of very stable inert materials, which minimizes shrinkage and sensitivity.

Porcelain inlays are the best aesthetic choice for filling cavities, and are almost undetectable when completed. Gold inlays/onlays offer the strength of metal without the risks associated with mercury toxicity.

Inlays can be used in place of regular fillings. Onlays are a more conservative option for teeth that have very large cavities or fillings, and for teeth that are broken, which might otherwise be restored by crowns.

Inlays and onlays can be placed in 2 visits.
