Porcelain inlays are utilized to replace a small amount of tooth that has been lost to decay. For our Burlington area patients that need more extensive restoration work, we can use onlays that fit within the tooth, but also extend to the chewing surface of back teeth. These fillings can be made completely in the office. Traditionally, they were made of gold, but in modern times, inlays come in tooth-coloured porcelain which the most biocompatible material for the body and even stronger than gold.
It is difficult to determine whether onlays, inlays, fillings, or crowns and caps are the best to use in your situation unless a professional does a thorough examination of your teeth. We encourage anyone in Burlington interested in tooth fillings, onlays, and inlays, to book an appointment with us here at Cornerstone Dental. We look forward to helping you restore your smile!
