Porcelain Inlays

What are they?

Inlays made of porcelain, gold or a white filling material called composite are used to repair damaged teeth. They are custom made to fit a hole in your tooth or to sit on top of it and build up its shape (onlays). Porcelain inlays can be made to match the colour of your teeth.

How are they put in place?

Your dentist will remove any old filling material and use a mould to determine the shape of the inlays. While technicians make the inlay you will receive a temporary filling. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be glued in place.

What are the benefits?

  • Porcelain inlays are strong and generally last longer than fillings.
  • They will look more natural than white fillings, particularly if you are repairing a large section of your front teeth.
