WHAT ARE INLAYS & ONLAYS?
Composite or metal filling materials are commonly used in treating tooth decay. However, in cases where the tooth loss is grand, we prefer porcelain fillings as it is stronger and meets aesthetic needs. These porcelain fillings are called “inlay” and “onlay”, and are prepared in a laboratory environment in accordance with the measurements taken after the decay is cleared.
What are the Advantages of Inlays & Onlays?
They are aesthetic.
They have a strong structure.
They have good coherence with the dental tissue.
COMPOSITE LAMINATE (BONDING)
Resin veneers (composite laminates) are an alternative trearment to porcelain veneers to form a beautiful smile. They are made from composites which are an aesthetic filling material.

The connection is made through a special chemical system we call bonding.
