Porcelain Inlays & Onlays in Kitchener
Porcelain inlays and onlays are dental restorations that can effectively treat a variety of dental problems. These include treating:
- Weakened back teeth
- Teeth that have undergone heavy restoration
- Teeth under heavy chewing loads
Porcelain inlays and onlays provide exceptional strength, durability, and support for ailing teeth. Because they are made from strong porcelain material, these dental restorations are natural looking as well. However, one big difference between these dental restorations and dental crowns is that they only treat a portion of the tooth’s structure. As a result, less of the tooth has to be removed, which makes inlays and onlays well-suited for minor forms of decay and damage.
To place an inlay or onlay, it often takes two appointments. During your first visit, we will make impressions of your teeth and send these to a dental lab to create your restoration. Once they are ready, you will return to our office to have them placed. And because each restoration is custom-made for your teeth, we ensure aesthetically pleasing results.
