Porcelain Dental Inlays and Onlays
Beauty, Strength and Comfort for Chesterfield Smiles
Preferred Provider for Most Dental Insurance Plans
Some teeth need a little more coverage or strengthening but don’t quite require the size of a full dental crown. When you want beauty combined with long-wearing durability in a smaller restoration, choose our strong and secure porcelain dental inlays and onlays.
The Benefits of Dental Inlays and Onlays
For extra strength and support, we may recommend porcelain inlays or onlays. Since these beautiful restorations are custom made in a laboratory and then bonded to your teeth instead of pressed into them, inlays and onlays are more strengthening and more conservative than a metal filling. While traditional fillings can reduce tooth strength up to 50 percent, inlays and onlays made of high-strength porcelain can actually increase tooth strength by up to 75 percent. Inlays and onlays do not respond to temperature changes the way metal fillings do, plus they require less tooth preparation and drilling than conventional fillings!
We use porcelain dental inlays and onlays to repair:
