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 the 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 an 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: [email protected]
