Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Many patients request porcelain inlays and onlays to replace their silver fillings. These restorations are much stronger than resin-bonded fillings because they are made from the same pure porcelain used in crowns, but without the metal. Fabricated over 2 short visits, they are custom-made to cement into the tooth where the old filling or cavity was before.
Advantages of Porcelain Inlays or Onlays:
- Durable—last 10+ years
- Aesthetic—look just like tooth structure
- Stronger than resin (bonded) fillings
- Easy to clean
