Porcelain Inlays

Porcelain Inlays at Ravenscourt Dental Practice

Porcelain, or tooth coloured, inlays and onlays are dental restorations designed to restore cracked, fractured or decay-damaged teeth.

Many patients prefer the porcelain design because they blend in with the colour of the teeth, offer strength and help achieve a more natural smile.  This conservative approach to restoring a tooth offers many advantages.

Porcelain inlays and onlays can be used to repair damage that is too severe to be fixed by a traditional filling, but also not severe enough to require a full-crown procedure.

While an inlay fits within the confines of the teeth, an onlay covers the entire chewing surface of the tooth.

Inlays are ideal treatment for people who have a problem filling or more severe damage caused by decay or trauma, allowing it to be repaired without significant loss to the natural structure of the teeth.

Do you have a large filling that needs replacing?  Would you like the dentist to assess whether an inlay would be a better option?  Contact Ravenscourt Dental Practice now on 020 8748 4023 or email: team@rdpholistic.co.uk
