If more tooth structure has been lost (from decay or previous broken filling) than can effectively be repaired with a chairside resin or amalgam filling, then laboratory-made resin or ceramic inlays and onlays may offer a more conservative alternative to a full crown. Inlays and onlays are stronger and more wear resistant than chairside-placed fillings. They are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. The tooth remains intact and stronger. In addition, they often do not need to be placed below the gum line, which is healthier for your gums. The result is a beautiful smile that lasts!

This process requires two appointments.
At the Lab: A ceramic or resin material is carefully placed into the model of your teeth. It is then designed to look natural.
Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!
