Brampton Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are restorations used to fix damaged and weak teeth. They are smaller than dental crowns but are more durable than a filling. Inlays are placed between chewing surfaces of teeth, while onlays may cover the tooth cusps.
Why Do You Need Inlays and Onlays?
Brampton porcelain inlays and onlays repair teeth that are not damaged enough to require a dental crown. They restore moderately cracked, fractured, and decayed teeth. You can also use an inlay or onlay to repair a large cavity instead of a filling. The porcelain restoration mimics the natural look and feel of your teeth.
Are You A Candidate for Inlays and Onlays?
Our team will examine your damaged teeth to determine if you need an inlay or onlay restoration. If you want to replace your filling with a more durable tooth restoration, you are a perfect candidate for this procedure. Additionally, you are good to go if your tooth is slightly damaged.
What's The Inlay and Onlay Process?
We will first assess the damaged tooth then remove the old filling, decay, or damaged area on your first appointment. Our dentist will smoothen the area if there is a crack or break. We take impressions that are used in the lab to create a well-crafted onlay or inlay. You will go home with a temporary restoration as you wait for the second appointment.
Your second visit involves placing the customized onlay or inlay on your tooth using a resin adhesive. The dentist then polishes the restoration to ensure it feels and fits perfectly.
