What is a porcelain inlay or onlay?

If you have tooth decay, a dental filling is normally the answer. However, when more than half of the tooth’s biting surface is damaged or when a stronger material is needed, our Island Dental Adelaide dentists will recommend using a porcelain inlay or onlay for a number of reasons:

  1. They’re tooth-coloured and provide a natural look, so no one will know you’ve had dental work.
  2. Because we can etch the material used, we can bond the porcelain inlay or onlay on to the tooth, creating a stronger, more durable tooth for many years to come.
  3. The physical characteristics of porcelain are as close to that of your natural tooth structure that we can get.

Initial cosmetic consultation

If you are considering a porcelain inlay or onlay, or any of our other cosmetic dentistry treatments, call us on (08) 8449 9777 to schedule your initial cosmetic consultation.
In this consultation, we will assess and discuss your suitability and expected results, porcelain inlay or onlay costs and the costs for alternative cosmetic treatments, including expected treatment lifetime.

What’s the difference between a porcelain inlay and onlay?

Inlay: Similar to a filling, a porcelain inlay is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth.

Onlay: This is like an inlay, but it’s a more substantial reconstruction. It’s somewhat like a partial crown and extends out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

What does getting a porcelain inlay or onlay involve?

Typically, you would have needed to come into the dentist for two appointments to complete the inlay/onlay procedure and waited for a laboratory to make the inlay or onlay.

The modern dentistry advantage

However, at Island Dental, we can do this procedure in just one visit, using CEREC – a 3D computer-based restoration system that produces precise porcelain inlays and onlays. These restorations have many advantages over laboratory-produced porcelain restorations and since we were one of the first practices in Australia to purchase this technology, we’re very experienced in its use.
