Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are offered as cosmetic solutions for your smile. Ask our Ottawa dentist at Hog's Back Dental Centre if inlays and onlays may be for you.
Why might I consider inlays or onlays for my smile?
Inlays and onlays are available to patients looking to restore decayed or weakened teeth.
Since they are customizable, they also can be an aesthetic alternative to composite fillings.
What materials are inlays and onlays made of?
Inlays and onlays are made with porcelain, which can be customized to your tooth shade. Porcelain inlays and onlays are made from the same materials that are used for dental crowns and bridges.
What is the difference between the two?
The main difference between tooth-colored composite restoration and inlays and onlays is that inlays fit between the bumps of your teeth and onlays cover the top of the bumps of your teeth.
