Do you have a cavity, advanced decay, or other damage that seems a little too large for a simple filling but not quite large enough for the commitment of a dental crown? Ask us about porcelain inlays and onlays. These incredible restorations offer all the strength and staying power of a lab-created crown without covering your entire tooth. Instead, inlays and onlays cover only the portion of your enamel that needs to be supported and restored, preserving more of your natural enamel and lowering the overall cost.
Inlays are most similar to fillings, but instead of composite bonding materials, they fill the area inside the cusps, or points, of your teeth with the stability of porcelain. Onlays cover more of your tooth and are more similar to crowns, covering one or more of the cusps that may need strengthening or repair. Either choice is ideal for any smile and can last years longer than composite repairs while also offering an unparalleled, nature-mimicking appearance.
