Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are used when a tooth is too damaged to support a normal filling, but still has enough strength not to warrant a crown. Both inlays and onlays are a form of indirect restoration, meaning they are constructed outside of the mouth as a single piece that is later cemented into a tooth.
What’s the difference? Inlays are used to repair the chewing surface between cusps on a tooth. Onlays involve one or more cusps being covered.
Porcelain inlays and onlays protect and strengthen teeth without the need for restructuring. They also require less tooth preparation compared to crowns, are customized to the shape of your teeth and look natural.
