Porcelain Onlays

  •  An onlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Porcelain onlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth.
  • An onlay is sometimes also referred to as a partial crown. Porcelain onlays are made by a professional dental laboratory and is permanently cemented onto the tooth by your dentist.
  • Onlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma.
  • Onlays are an ideal alternative to crowns (caps) because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of onlays.
  • Onlays are essentially identical to inlays with the exception that one or more of the chewing cusps have also been affected and need to be included in the restoration.
  • As with most dental restorations, onlays are not always permanent and may someday require replacement. They are highly durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.


Porcelain Inlays


  • An inlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain.
  • Porcelain inlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth.
  • A porcelain inlay is made by a professional dental laboratory and is permanently cemented into the tooth by your dentist.
  • Inlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma.
  • Inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings.
