Porcelain Inlay & Onlay

Why Porcelain Inley and Onleys?

Because with a normal filling 50% of the lost dental tissue is being filled and restored, but when the tissue loss rises, a porcelain onleys can restore and fill up to 75% of this tissue loss together with protecting the remaining tissues.

Porcelain onleys can achieve a very healthy restoration of substance loss in dental tissues that other fillings can not achieve.

With porcelain fillings we expect a healthy, unproblematic usage of the molars or premolars for 8-15 years. In some cases, in the cases shown above, when there is no enough dental layer to apply the crown, porcelain filling comes to the rescue as a very healthy alternative.

The ready to use porcelain for the next session, will be pasted very strongly to the incisors with a liquid filling material named adhesive cementation after testing the compatibility of the porcelain for the mouth. And with this adhesive material the remaining dental tissues will be strengthened.
After cementing the porcelain a polishing procedure will be applied as the final stage of this operation.
