Porcelain inlays and onlays are restorations that fall somewhere in between fillings and dental crowns. We chose these lab-fabricated restorations for their superior strength and appearance without all the tooth preparation required by a full, porcelain dental crown. Inlays recreate the natural tooth enamel inside the cusps or points of your teeth for unsurpassed protection and chewing surface. Onlays cover a bit more of your tooth, including one or more cusps. Because these restorations are specially designed and created for you in pure dental porcelain at one of our world-class labs, they require two visits. At the first visit, Dr. Tiplea will discuss your needs, take molds, and restore your teeth with a temporary solution. Once your exclusive restorations are back from the lab, you will return for fitting and permanent placement. Our customers love these restorations because they are so comfortable, so beautiful, and so life-like, they often forget which tooth or teeth were restored!
