porcelain inlays & onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth colored enamel-like porcelain restorations fabricated by a highly skilled dental technician and permanently bonded in place. Porcelain inlays and onlays are much stronger and last longer than composite resin fillings, they are highly aesthetic, and are the ideal restoration for both strength and longevity.
Porcelain inlays and onlays are completed in two appointments and are indicated for the back (posterior) teeth to:
- restore medium to large cavities
- replace medium to large defective silver fillings
- restore the natural anatomy of worn down back teeth
- strengthen fractured back teeth
