Restoring damaged or broken teeth

At All Dental Tampa, our team of highly experienced dentists have helped several clients dealing with damaged or broken teeth through porcelain inlays and onlays. These onlays are very similar to metal fillings, but have greater aesthetic appeal. They are useful in strengthening the teeth structure and can replace damaged or old fillings.

The reason why porcelain inlays and onlays are called indirect fillings is because as opposed to traditional fillings which are done in the dentist’s office, these are developed in a clinical lab. At your second appointment the doctor will cement or bond the fillings to the tooth surface.

Inlays and onlays can strengthen your tooth's structure.

A huge advantage of porcelain inlays and onlays over traditional fillings is that they don’t end up weakening the structure of the tooth; in fact, they actually strengthen it. Once the procedure is completed, the tooth might be able to exercise up to 75% more force while chewing.

The dentist will perform a complete examination of each patient’s teeth during the initial consultation. This allows the doctor to suggest the right dental restoration technique for the patient’s unique condition.

The many advantages of inlays and onlays

Porcelain inlays and onlays have numerous advantages over standard fillings and are hence becoming extremely popular in modern dentistry. The customized fit and complex design of these fillings ensure minimal bacterial leakage and a healthier gum line. These dental fillings are also longer-lasting and provide a strong biting force.
