What Are Porcelain Inlays and Onlays?
Porcelain inlays and onlays are a type of dental restoration that are used to repair damaged or decayed teeth.

We also use high-quality materials to ensure that your restoration will last for years to come.

Procedure for Placing Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
At our dental practice, we provide our patients with porcelain inlays and onlays to help restore the strength and beauty of their teeth. Our experienced and highly trained dentists will use a minimally invasive procedure to place the inlays and onlays. The procedure begins by numbing the area around the affected tooth to ensure the patient’s comfort. Then, the dentist will remove any decayed or damaged tooth structure to prepare the area for the inlay or onlay.
Once the area is ready, the dentist will take an impression of the tooth and send it to the dental lab for the fabrication of the porcelain inlay or onlay. When the restoration is ready, the dentist will bond it to the prepared area and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper fit. The inlay or onlay will then be polished to match the surrounding teeth and provide a natural-looking smile. Our dentists use the highest quality materials and techniques to provide our patients with the best possible results.
At our dental practice, we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality care and services. Our experienced dentists are committed to providing the best possible outcome with porcelain inlays and onlays. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
Care and Maintenance of Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
At our dental practice, we provide porcelain inlays and onlays to help restore your teeth to their original strength and appearance. In order to keep your porcelain inlays and onlays looking their best and functioning properly, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
Good oral hygiene is essential for the care of your porcelain inlays and onlays. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly will help remove plaque and food particles that can build up around the inlays and onlays. Additionally, it is important to use a fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash to help protect your teeth from decay.
It is also important to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. During these visits, your dentist will inspect your inlays and onlays for any signs of wear or damage. If any damage is found, your dentist can repair or replace the inlays and onlays as needed. This will help ensure that your porcelain inlays and onlays last for years to come.
