Porcelain Inlays and Onlays differ only in the area of treatment. These conservative dental treatments are minimally invasive – meaning only the decayed area of the tooth is removed. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays fit perfectly into the affected area, meaning decay is less likely to occur once the restoration is completed. Created from ceramic material, Porcelain Inlays and Onlays look and feel like your natural teeth
As an alternative to traditional amalgam fillings porcelain inlays and onlays are actually healthier and long lasting. Compared to composite onlays, CEREC onlays and inlays help restore your tooth closer to its original strength and have superior aesthetics and are much more conservative to PBM (porcelain bonded to metal) crowns. And because they are metal free, CEREC onlays have a more natural look and feel.
