Treatments - Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

Porcelain (tooth coloured) inlays and onlays are restorations placed usually on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.

An inlay fits within the confines of the teeth. An onlay covers the entire chewing surface of the tooth. These can be made of either plastic resin or porcelain.

'The procedure involves removing the decayed tooth structure or old fillings and preparing the tooth cavity. An impression is then taken of the cavity to fabricate a custom-fit inlay or onlay. Conventionally, two visits are required to complete the treatment but, using our CEREC machine at The Dental Health Practice, we can produce excellent inalys/onlays in only ONE VISIT.
