DENTAL INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Porcelain inlays and onlays offer excellent opportunities when it comes to restoring normal tooth structure following injury, damage or decay of the teeth. In many ways porcelain inlays and onlays are considered indirect fillings since they are actually made in a laboratory. Porcelain inlays and onlays are ultimately bonded or cemented to the surface of existing tooth structure to create a seamless and attractive restoration. Most importantly, porcelain inlays and onlays do not weaken the tooth structure the way that a standard filling would do.
Requiring A Greater Amount Of Restorative Coverage
As a matter of fact, porcelain inlays and onlays will strengthen the tooth structure and result in a tooth that can handle greater chewing force than would otherwise be the case. With an inlay, the main section of the tooth that is being replaced is the cusps or tips of the actual tooth. With onlays there is typically more substantial damage to the tooth structure requiring a greater amount of restorative coverage. Inlays and onlays offer patients the opportunity to take advantage of modern dental technology and advancements that result in a beautiful and functional smile.
