Porcelain Inlay

Porcelain inlays refer to indirect fillings made of porcelain that fit into the affected tooth that have decay or damage lying within their indented top surfaces. Its purpose is to make the tooth stronger by holding it together while retaining a natural esthetically pleasing colour. They are used in instances when there is deficient tooth structure to support a filling but the tooth is still in a condition that does not require a crown. Tooth colored porcelain inlay offer much more enduring and natural-looking results than metal fillings.
