Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Strengthening and Repairing Alexandria, VA Smiles
We want the best for our patients and what we use to repair teeth and cavities is no exception. If your teeth are damaged or have large, old fillings that need to be replaced, we recommend beautiful and durable porcelain inlays and onlays to repair, strengthen and protect your teeth.
The Strength and Beauty of Porcelain
Because dental inlays and onlays are made of porcelain, they are long lasting and actually strengthen your tooth. Porcelain inlays and onlays are custom fabricated by an expert dental laboratory so that the inlay or onlay fits precisely into the tooth. The Inlay or onlay is then bonded to the surface of the tooth allowing us to preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
Inlays cover and restore inside the cusps, or points, of your tooth, while onlays act almost like a small crown, covering and repairing the inside of the tooth, and also extending over the sides to offer extra strength and protection.
What our patients love best about dental inlays and onlays is that no one can see them in their smiles! They are individually created to blend perfectly with your own tooth so your smile looks naturally healthy and bright!
