Besides dental crowns, porcelain inlays / onlays are another common dental restoration that is used. Porcelain inlays / onlays are ideal for treating worn down teeth and strengthening back molars under heavy chewing loads. Compare to the dental crowns which cover the entire visible portion of the tooth’s structure, inlays and onlays only cover a small section. This allows your tooth to retain more of its natural structure. Porcelain inlays / onlays are extremely stable, durable and aesthetically pleasing. The porcelain material strengthens the tooth while blending in with the rest of your smile.
