Porcelain Inlays / Onlays
Another attractive alternative to composite fillings is porcelain inlays/onlays. These attractive dental restorations are highly durable and are a great option to treat weakened back molars as well as teeth under heavy chewing loads. They are also ideal for restoring decayed teeth or teeth that have been previously restored. Compared to dental crowns, which cover the entire tooth’s surface area above the gum line, inlays and onlays only cover a portion. This means less of the tooth has to be prepared and that more of its natural structure remains intact.
Inlays and onlays are made of high-quality porcelain material which makes these restorations strong and durable. They are also aesthetically pleasing since the material is matched to your teeth’s natural shade. With proper care, they can last for many years.
