Tooth Coloured Porcelain Fillings

Inlays

Inlays are naturally coloured fillings that are used to replace large fillings that have repeatedly fractured or likelihood of fracture. As they need to be extremely strong and able to withstand the grinding pressures required of these teeth, porcelain, ceramic or composite material is used.

They are custom made and are bonded to sit within the cusp tips of the tooth.

Onlays

Are made out of similar material as Inlays, Onlays are the the strongest type of filling as they cover the whole tooth cusp. This results in a strengthened tooth structure.

No impressions are required as we digitally scan your tooth/teeth & this is sent to a technician who will manufacture your inlay/onlay.

At the second visit the dentist will ensure your fillings fit perfectly. They are then bonded into place and polished.
