Porcelain inlays and onlays are fillings made in the dental lab. Contrary to composite fillings done during the same consultation, porcelain inlays and onlays require dental lab fabrication. They are ideal for the restoration of moderately damaged and fractured posterior teeth that do not require a dental crown.
- They last an average of 10 years, a lot more than the traditional composite (white) fillings.
- Can actually increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75%.
- They are almost undetectable.
