Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

Easthetically pleasing as well as durable, as an alternate option to fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays offer durability, rendering them an important method for treating your back teeth (molars) that have los their vitality. The teeth that are most often used for chewing food, decaying teeth, or teeth having undergone restorative treatments benefit most from affixing inlays and onlays. Inlays and onlays offer a great deal of protection as well as easthetic restorative traits. Crowns tend to be used in order to replace the exterior of one's tooth whereas inlays/onlays only repair a damaged portion of a tooth. As a result, the procedure demands a lesser amount of tooth preparation.

Porcelain inlays and onlays are custom made in order to replicate the tint and colour of your original, organic teeth, thus creating more naturally appearing results. Inlays and onlays are constructed by utilizing the same porcelain material that are used to create crowns and dental bridges. Porcelain inlays and onlays also look almost identical to composite-based tooth restoration materials, but because of their slight variances in certain characteristics in their materials'composition and the production process in the laboratory, porcelain inlays/onlays are more durable than their composite counterparts.
