Porcelain Inlays/Onlays In Hamilton
Porcelain inlays and onlays are attractive and fairly durable alternatives to composite fillings as they provide a remarkable amount of strength, making them a superior choice for supporting weakened molars (back teeth). Teeth that tend to the bulk of people’s heavy chewing, decayed teeth, or teeth that have previously undergone extensive restorations can all benefit from inlays and onlays, as they offer first-rate protective and restorative qualities. Inlays/onlays are different from crowns in that they are intended to only cover and protect a particular part of the tooth, therefore requiring less preparation.
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be custom-made to meet the shade of your natural teeth, providing a natural look. They are shaped from porcelain materials, similar to what is used in fabricating crowns and bridges. Porcelain inlays and onlays look similar to composite-based restoration materials, however, they are more durable than their composite counterparts.
