Porcelain Inlyas and Onlays

An inlay or onlay restoration is a laboratory made “filling” that is made of materials that are stronger and able to withstand the increased forces placed on the back teeth during chewing.
Inlays and Onlays have revolutionized conservative dentistry in order to repair teeth while maintaining more natural tooth structure than before, thus leading to increased life-span of that tooth.

Composition of Inlays or Onlays:

  • Composite filling material
  • Metals like gold
  • Precious material like porcelain

Preparation of Inlays and Onlays:

Inlay procedures are two-visit procedures due to the fact that they require the restoration to be made at a laboratory. The first appointment consists of the dentist “preparing” the site and tooth for mold of your mouth used to created the final restoration. A temporary restoration will be made for you to wear for two weeks until the final is returned from the laboratory.
The second appointment requires that your inlay be tried in and if the dentist feels that the fit and color is to the standard of dental care and you are satisfied with the restoration, then it will be cemented.
