At Lake of the Woods Dental Health Centre in Kenora, we provide inlays and onlays to help fix broken, misshapen, chipped, asymmetrical or damaged teeth.
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be durable alternatives to composite fillings. They are usually used to support weakened molars or back teeth.
For teeth that must stand up to heavy chewing, teeth that are decayed, or teeth that have previously undergone extensive restoration, inlays and onlays can offer superb protection and restoration qualities.
Inlays and onlays are different from crowns which cover the tooth in its entirety. These are intended to protect a particular part of the tooth and usually require less tooth preparation as a result.
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be customized to meet the shade of your natural teeth and can ensure a natural look. Inlays and onlays are normally fashioned from the same porcelain material used in crowns and bridgework.
Either an inlay or an onlay may be a viable cosmetic dental option for your smile.
Fit just inside the bumps of a tooth, similar to a composite filling.
Cover more surface area than inlays as they wrap over one or more edges of the tooth.
