Porcelain Onlays Inlays Q & A by Viviane Trinh, DDS

Our dental office offers two specific types of dental fillings in NYC: porcelain onlays and porcelain inlays. These options are used to replace your decayed or dying tooth and keep your beautiful smile intact. These inlays/onlays are inserted by taking impressions of the damaged tooth, filling it in the laboratory to restore it to its original shape and size and then fixing it back into your mouth.

What are the benefits of porcelain inlays/onlays?

Both types of fillings are extremely durable and last longer than traditional metal fillings. Materials used for porcelain inlays/onlays are designed to match the natural color of your tooth. Not only do they help retain the original aesthetics and character of the tooth, they also provide strength to avoid future fractures by increasing resistance.

Dental hygiene also places a very critical role in the development and maintenance of your inlays/onlays. Brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups not only leads to healthy teeth, but strongly determines the success rate of your porcelain inlays/onlays filling procedure.
