Restore Your Teeth with Porcelain Inlays & Onlays in Downtown Jeffersonville
Porcelain inlays and onlays are custom made prosthetics used to treat damage that is too big for a regular filling but not big enough to need a full crown. Porcelain inlays are used on the inside of a tooth while porcelain onlays replace the elevated bump or cusp of a tooth.
A porcelain inlay or onlay are prepared in the laboratory and later cemented on your tooth.They are excellent, conservative alternatives to a crown because less tooth structure is eliminated in the preparation of your tooth.
Like other dental restorations, inlays and onlays are not permanent and may require replacement in the future. However, they are durable and can last for many years if you maintain at-home oral hygiene care and schedule regular dental checkups. They are most commonly used for:
- Fractured teeth
- Broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be shaped to blend with your natural teeth and mimic the color of your natural enamel. Porcelain is stain-resistant and will remain vibrant and bright over time.
