Porcelain inlays and onlays are used to fill larger cavities while maintaining the look of a natural smile. Porcelain dental Inlays and Onlays are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth to help restore it to maximum strength and prevent further damage. Inlays are similar to a traditional filling and are used inside the tips of the tooth to restore full use of the tooth while maintaining its natural look and feel. An Onlay is a more substantial reconstruction and is used in cases of severe damage.
What Is An Onlay
An Onlay involves applying an extension over one or more cusps of the tooth. Both procedures substantially increase the strength of the tooth while restoring the look and feel of a perfect smile. Porcelain Inlays or Onlay restorations are used for: Broken teeth Fractured teeth Decayed teeth Large and fractured fillings. A porcelain inlay is custom-made insert that perfectly fits inside the designed tooth. It looks natural and is bonded well to prevent further decay

How long do Inlays and Onlays last
One of the many great things about Inlays and Onlays is they don’t typically stain; and they can last up to 30 years. How amazing is that?

Dr. Steven Regenstein and his wonderful team at the Esthetic Dental Group will help to put your mind at ease. You can rest assured that all Inlay and Onlay procedures will be expertly done and you’ll be handled with the professionalism you deserve.
Keep In Mind
Your Inlay procedure usually takes two appointments. In the first appointment, the dentist takes accurate impressions of your custom restorations and in the second appointment the Inlays or Outlays are cemented into place. The procedure itself isn’t as severe as some similar dental procedures. It is important however to find an expert that has performed such procedures with a great track record of success. It’s your mouth! Make sure you do your research, check out reviews, and do right by you and your smile.
