Consider the cosmetic and health benefits of inlays and onlays.
When over half of the biting surface of your teeth has been exposed to damage you may need to consider the cosmetic and health benefits of dental restorations with inlays and onlays. Often made of porcelain for its strong composition and ability to match the natural color of your teeth, inlays and onlays (also known as “partial crowns”) bond directly to the teeth using a high strength resin. Unlike traditional fillings that can reduce the natural strength of the tooth, inlays and onlays can increase the overall strength of the tooth or teeth by up to 75%. After placement these strong restorative devices can last 10 to 30 years with proper care such as brushing and flossing twice daily.
