Inlays / Onlays

Porcelain dental inlays and onlays can be used to restore teeth that require large fillings.  They provide excellent cosmetic results, along with increased strength and durabilit, allowing teeth to function. The inlay and onlay are bonded onto the tooth in order to prevent further deterioration requiring root canal treatment. These can be made of either plastic resin or more usually porcelain.  The procedure involves removing decayed tooth structure or old fillings, preparing the tooth cavity, taking an impression of the cavity to fabricate a custom-fit inlay or onlay. Two visits are required to complete the treatment
