Porcelain Inlays / Onlays in Toronto, Ontario
Porcelain inlays/onlays are very creative substitutes to composite bonded fillings. They provide a higher degree of strength and also are much more suitable for restoring weakened back teeth. Inlays and onlays protect and restore large portions of decayed, or chipped teeth, teeth that are heavily restored, or teeth that are under a constantly heavy load (back teeth). In comparison to crowns, these only cover a portion of the tooth and, therefore, are considered to be more conservative in regard to the amount of tooth preparation required.
Inlays and onlays are fabricated with custom-coloured porcelain so that they match the shade of your natural teeth. They also have a very similar texture to your natural teeth. Porcelain inlays/onlays are fashioned from the same powerful material that is used for creating dental crowns. A customized shade makes them virtually undetectable. The major distinction between tooth-coloured composite restorations and inlay/onlays is that the latter are constructed using a laboratory process and differing materials, which makes them stronger and more durable.
