Expert Houston Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
There are many solutions when it comes to fixing your teeth. If you happen to missing a lot of a tooth, but the structure is still good, your Houston dentist may choose to save the tooth or teeth using porcelain inlays or onlays.
The restoration often involves onlays that are bonded to the damaged tooth. In short it’s a ceramic filling glued to your tooth. When done correctly it is difficult to tell which part is the natural tooth and which is the filling.
The process involves shaping the tooth, making a mold and having the laboratory make the ceramic part. During that time a temporary filling is placed in the mouth. The ceramic part is then glued into place. Watch the video to see more.
Ceramic fillings are better then composite fillings in their strength, fit and look. their only disadvantage is the added cost of the laboratory fee.
