Today’s porcelain and composite resins create fillings that not only look natural but also are stronger than materials of the past. Inlays and onlays are the perfect solutions to creating healthy, beautiful restorations for your teeth.
Inlays are used to repair inside the cusps of the tooth, while onlays restore inside the cusp and extend over one or more sides of the tooth. They are made of strong, long-lasting and natural-looking materials, and are invisible in the smile. Inlays are a conservative tooth restoration, meaning that they require far less drilling and preparation of the tooth than a metal filling does. This allows us to save much more of the healthy tooth.
