Tooth coloured restorations.

Porcelain Inlays

We have been providing porcelain inlays for many years at Smilecare. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are often provided when a large, defective filling needs to be replaced.Porcelain inlays and onlays have several advantages over other filling materials. When used to replace a silver filling, they will add strength to the tooth. Porcelain is also harder and more durable than white composite fillings. The inlay or onlay will be bonded to your tooth, which creates a resilient, watertight seal. The best part of all is that these restorations can be custom coloured to match your own teeth. A porcelain onlay will also be more conservative, saving more natural tooth structure, than a full crown.

Composite (White) Fillings

Composite fillings are a great way of restoring medium sized cavities. Composites have been significantly improved over the years and studies have now proven that composite has comparable longevity to amalgam fillings. Like porcelain inlays they have superior aesthetic qualities to alternative filling material and they can strengthen teeth by forming a chemical bond with the tooth structure. Composites are not only used to restore decayed areas, but are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
