Why Consider an Inlay or Onlay?

Your teeth work hard day in and day out. Four things that tend to take a heavy toll on your teeth include:

  • Decay
  • Wear
  • Disease
  • Older metal fillings

Our dentist prefers porcelain inlays and onlays because these pieces can be precisely matched to the damaged area of your tooth and then bonded into place. They also represent a more conservative approach to preserving traditional teeth as the dentist can employ a porcelain inlay or onlay without having to remove a significant amount of the original tooth structure.

Cracks, decay or discoloration disappear after this procedure. Porcelain has the added benefit of holding teeth together as opposed to causing them to spread and splinter the way traditional silver and metal inlays, onlays and fillings once did. (Since metal expands, metal dental fixtures actually make teeth to crack over time.)

Porcelain also is stronger than resin. That means it can stand up to years of biting and chewing without incident.
