The dentists at New Minas Dental Centre offer inlays and onlays to patients in New Minas, Kentville and Wolfville, looking for cosmetic restoration options.
An alternative to composite fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays are made of a strong material that are a good choice for supporting weakened molars or back teeth.
For teeth that must stand up to heavy chewing, teeth that are decayed, or teeth that have previously undergone extensive restoration, inlays and onlays can offer protection and restoration qualities.
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be customized to meet the shade of your natural teeth, ensuring a more natural look.
Different from crowns which cover the tooth in its entirety, inlays/onlays are intended to protect a particular part of the tooth and require less tooth preparation as a result.
Porcelain inlays and onlays have a similar appearance to composite-based tooth restoration materials, but because of their materials and the laboratory process involved in their creation, porcelain inlays/onlays are found to be durable.
Inlays and onlays are fashioned from the same porcelain material used in crowns and bridgework.
