Porcelain Onlay's, Inlay & Veneers

Dr. Aver uses metal free onlays and inlays to restore the

biting surface of molars, and metal free veneers are used to restore the surface of front teeth.

What is it? 

An onlay and inlay, also referred to as a partial crown, is a custom filling made of BPA free composite resin or porcelain and is permanently cemented onto the tooth. Onlays and inlays are an alternative to crowns and a conservative option to restoring teeth affected by decay, trauma or with large defective fillings back to a more natural biting surface.

Onlay's:

Restores the biting surface 

Inlay:

Restoration in which a portion of the occlusal (biting) surface is restored 

Advantages 

  • Excellent esthetic 

  • Strong material (porcelain) 

  • Restorations can last over 10 years 

Disadvantages

  • Takes 2 appointments for complete restoration

  • Could cause wear on the enamel 

Veneer's

Veneers, also known as shells, are a thin layer of semi-transparent material permanently bonded to teeth. Dr. Aver uses veneers made of porcelain or BPA free composite resin.

 

Veneers restore damage and improve appearance by correcting worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration, and chips or cracks. This helps protect the surface of further damage and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments.
