An attractive and equally durable alternative to composite fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays offer an exceptional amount of strength that makes them an excellent choice for supporting weak molars or back teeth. For teeth that must stand up to heavy chewing, teeth that are decayed, or teeth that have previously undergone extensive restoration, inlays and onlays can offer superb protection and restoration qualities. Different from crowns, which cover the tooth in its entirety, inlays/onlays are intended to protect a particular part of the tooth and require less tooth preparation as a result.
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be customized to meet the shade of your natural teeth, ensuring a more attractive, natural look. Inlays and onlays are fashioned from the same porcelain material used in crowns and bridgework. Porcelain inlays and onlays have a similar appearance to composite-based tooth restoration materials. Porcelain inlays/onlays are found to be more durable and stronger than their composite counterparts.
