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: [email protected]
