Ceramic Inlays/Onlays

Ceramic inlays and onlays are types of dental restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth while preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations fabricated from tooth-colored ceramic material, such as porcelain or composite resin. They are typically made in a dental laboratory to match the color, shape, and size of the patient's natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetic result.

Ceramic inlays are used to repair damage or decay within the cusps (raised points) of a tooth, while ceramic onlays are used to restore larger areas of damage that extend over one or more cusps. Both inlays and onlays are bonded securely to the remaining tooth structure, providing strength, durability, and an excellent cosmetic appearance.

Compared to traditional metal fillings, ceramic inlays and onlays offer several advantages, including:

● Aesthetic appeal: Ceramic materials closely mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel, making them virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.● Tooth preservation: Inlays and onlays require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to dental crowns, helping to preserve the strength and integrity of the tooth.● Durability: Ceramic restorations are highly durable and resistant to wear, providing long-lasting results.● Biocompatibility: Ceramic materials are biocompatible and well-tolerated by the body, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or other adverse effects.
Overall, ceramic inlays and onlays offer an excellent option for restoring teeth with moderate to severe damage or decay, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits for patients.
