Porcelain Inlays

← Return to treatments

Porcelain (tooth coloured) inlays and onlays are restorations placed usually on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.

An inlay fits within the confines of the teeth. An onlay covers the entire chewing surface of the tooth. These can be made of either plastic resin or porcelain.

The procedure involves removing decayed tooth structure or old fillings, preparing the tooth cavity, taking an impression of the cavity to fabricate a custom-fit inlay or onlay. Two visits are required to complete the treatment.

I’ve been a longstanding patient of Haymarket Dental after first attending the surgery 5 years ago. It’s very convenient for my work commute at Haymarket Station. The staff are always friendly and pleasant to talk to and I like the modern feel if the surgery inside.

It always feels at each appointment I attend that everything is very well explained and when I have received treatment in the past my dentist Andrew has always given me a full account of different options available for me with a print out of different cost options. I have recently had a porcelain Onlay fitted to a upper tooth half way back which had become sharp and uncomfortable. This treatment was performed in a single appointment 1 week after my 3 month Denplan hygiene appointment.

Andrew used his new scanning machine which I had never seen before. No Impressions, no temporary plastic tooth, no return visit....amazing. I then watched him design the Porcelain on the computer and waited in reception watching it being milled on their new machine. It was fitted within an hour. I had no idea this kind of thing existed. Thanks again. Thoroughly recommended.

Was seen by Dr Andrew Norman for my inlay, which was made in the practice (as I watched) by Andrew and a fancy machine. I have to say the service from the minute I entered till I left was 5 star! The receptionists, nurses and Andrew treated me very well indeed. I’ve been to many dentists over my years and this is my favourite.

My inlay looks and feels amazing, and I didn’t have to go back 2 weeks later to have it fitted since it was made whilst I waited. Very impressed with the experience. Thank you to all at Haymarket Dental. You’re the tops!
