Porcelain And Composite Inlays

Post-Treatment Expectations and Maintenance for Porcelain and Composite Inlays

Introduction to Inlays

Inlays are custom fit fillings made in a laboratory that are used to fill in cavities and decay in your teeth. They are fabricated to match the shape, size and color of your tooth and then bonded or glued to your tooth with special cements. Inlays provide a long-lasting and aesthetic solution to repairing cavities and decaying teeth.

Porcelain Inlays

Porcelain inlays are one type of inlay that are made of porcelain and are colored to match your tooth. The benefits of porcelain inlays include their stain resistance and hardness, as well as their aesthetic appeal.

Composite Inlays

Composite inlays are another type of inlay that are made of tooth-colored composites. These inlays are also aesthetically pleasing and are bonded or glued to your teeth with special cements, like porcelain inlays.
