Inlays and Onlays


Like we mentioned in our previous article, your teeth will wear down sometimes as you get older. Problems such as cavities will occur when poor brushing habits or even just general wear and tear are involved. One of the most common solutions to problems such as these will come in the form of Inlays and Onlays.

Inlays are porcelain fabrications created in a lab to fix problems such as cavities in the center of your teeth. Onlays then are fabrications used to fix problems on the biting cusp of the teeth. Fillings such as amalgam are often used, but we recommend the usage of safer fillings because amalgam contains unsafe amounts of mercury. Inlays are great solutions to cavities because they maintain the structural integrity of your tooth, while allowing for an ease of cleaning that you wouldn’t get elsewhere.
