Ceramic Inlays(Porcelain Inlays)

If patients express the wish to replace their old amalgam fillings with a biocompatible and durable material. From an aesthetic view, ceramic inlays are regarded as the top of all available alternatives.

What is an inlay?

Inlays are indirect fillings applied in back teeth (premolars, molars). After removal of the old, defect filling or caries, an impression is made of the cavity (that is the drilled out defect). A filling is then made in the laboratory from gold or ceramic, which fits the cavity with the utmost precision and restores the original form of the tooth. In the second session, the inlay is cemented into place. Large inlays which cover the cusps are referred to as onlays.

What are the advantages of ceramic inlays?

Ceramic inlays have no metal core and are therefore translucent. They are bonded to the tooth using a special adhesive method, leaving no marginal gaps. A chemical bond is created between.
