Repair Your Teeth With Inlays
Porcelain inlays work just like resin composite or metal silver fillings in your teeth, except they do not break down over time as composite or metal fillings can do. To place inlays in your teeth, your dentist will prepare the affected area, take an impression, and have a laboratory fabricate a custom fitting inlay for your tooth. Though inlays tend to cost more than fillings, this porcelain alternative tends to last much longer than the filling option.
Consider Onlays to Strengthen Your Teeth
Sometimes however, extensive tooth decay or cracked teeth require a different treatment option. If your dentist needs to fill, cover, or replace a bigger portion of tooth, he or she might recommend an onlay. Onlays work much the same as inlays do. However onlays can repair more damage than an inlay can, and can strengthen the tooth too. With porcelain onlays, your improved tooth will match the rest of your smile.
