Restorations made from superior quality ceramics are, we believe, the only real way to deal with an issue that needs restorative attention.
We offer fantastic porcelain inlays or, onlays which are fillings that fit either into or on top of the damaged tooth. These are ideal for use in cases where a standard filling is not quite enough but when a crown is unnecessary. We must destroy some of the natural tooth structure to place a crown; this is something we want to avoid at all costs.
Professional inlays and onlays take just two sessions to complete. In the first one, we eliminate all of the harmful decay or the old filling painlessly. We then take an impression of the tooth and install a temporary filling.
The second session comes one to two weeks after the first. During this time our master ceramist has expertly crafted your custom onlay/inlay, using the latest technology in our lab. We bond the new porcelain restoration to the affected tooth and you’re done.
We use porcelain inlays and onlays because unlike procedures like fillings, they strengthen the teeth. Fillings can often weaken the natural tooth structure because a lot of it is removed when your dentist is clearing the decay.
Our inlays and onlays can last anywhere up to 30 years which is a fantastic achievement and a great reason to consider choosing us as your dentist.
