Support weakened molars, fill cavities, and restore teeth with porcelain inlays and onlays at Delta’s SeRena Dental Centre. An alternative to composite fillings, inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings that can hold the tooth structure together as well as strengthens the tooth. Thanks to their porcelain makeup, inlays and onlays can be customized to resemble your natural teeth colour. Furthermore, inlays and onlays are designed with the same material used in crowns and bridgework, offering more durability than a traditional composite filling.
Dental inlays are similar to traditional filling. An inlay will be placed inside the grooves or cusp tips (top edges) of your tooth.
A dental onlay reaches beyond just the top edges of a tooth, wrapping up over the cusps and covering the tooth’s surface. Onlays are used when damage requires more extensive restoration.
