Inlays and Onlays for Teeth in Kenora

Porcelain inlays and onlays are a durable alternative 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 require less tooth preparation as a result.

Porcelain inlays and onlays can be customized to meet the shade of your natural teeth, ensuring a natural look. Inlays and onlays are fashioned from the same porcelain material used in crowns and bridgework.

What is the difference between an Inlay and an Onlay?

Either an inlay or an onlay may be a viable cosmetic dental option for your smile.

Inlays

Fit just inside the bumps of a tooth, similar to a composite filling.

Onlays

Cover more surface area than inlays as they wrap over one or more edges of the tooth.
