Decayed or damaged teeth may sometimes require more restoration than what a filling would provide, in which case porcelain inlays might be perfect. Dr. David Lofters of Smile Envy Dental Group often uses porcelain inlays to restore the teeth of patients in Smyrna, Vinings, and Atlanta, GA.
What are Porcelain Inlays?
Porcelain inlays are placed between the cusps of a tooth to help fill in the space that is caused by decay or damage. The inlays strengthen and reinforce the chewing surface of the tooth, and closely match the natural color so that it is virtually unnoticeable.
Benefits of Porcelain Inlays
In addition to providing a very natural appearance, porcelain inlays also reduce the need for other more invasive procedures such as dental crowns or implants. Patients with porcelain inlays find it very easy to eat chewy, sticky foods without fear of further damage.
