For larger restorations when a crown is not really necessary, we often recommend porcelain dental inlays and onlays. These porcelain restorations are not only beautiful, they are very long lasting and actually strengthen your tooth.
Inlays are the smaller of the two types of restorations. They cover and restore inside the cusps, or points, of your tooth. Onlays act almost like a crown, covering and repairing not only the inside of the tooth, but also extending over the sides to offer extra strength and protection to your damaged tooth.
What our patients love best about dental inlays and onlays is that no one can see them in their smiles! They are individually created to blend perfectly with your own teeth so your smile looks naturally healthy and bright!
