Dental Inlays and Onlays are porcelain fillings that are alternatives to crowns. When a tooth is cracked, or an old amalgam filling is leaking or failing, an inlay or onlay is an ideal way to restore the tooth. Dentists used to have to grind teeth down to nubs and place crowns on teeth, but not anymore. At Cosmodent Dental Care we prefer to keep your teeth intact and restore only the unhealthy or unstable parts of your teeth.
Inlays and Onlays are more conservative than crowns for that reason, and they don’t result in that ugly gray line at the gum.
