Recommended cosmetic dentist in Scarborough for posterior onlays and inlays

Recommended cosmetic dentist at Esquire Dental Centres in Scarborough for posterior onlays and inlays.

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dental work in which a dentist addressed aesthetic issues within the smile. These are concerns that affect the appearance of the smile. When patients have areas of decay in posterior teeth, a commonly recommended treatment is that of inlays or onlays.

What are inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are ceramic dental restorations that are often used when a filling is not enough to address an area of decay, but a dental crown would be too much. Inlays and onlays are bonded into place onto the tooth when cavities have occurred. They are great at restoring the smile, while doing so in a conservative way. Because inlays and onlays are made of porcelain, they also match the existing tooth enamel and can be difficult to distinguish as a restoration in the mouth.

Why are inlays and onlays made of porcelain?

Porcelain is a material commonly used in cosmetic dentistry. This is because it is:

  • Strong
  • Mimics natural tooth enamel
  • Safe and Biocompatible
  • Affordable
  • Easy to replace

Drs. Ashraf, Mark, and Amir Awadalla and their team of professionals at Esquire Dental Centres will suggest porcelain restorations in many aspects of their work. Porcelain is also used for the fabrication of other restorations such as tooth veneers, dental bridges, and dental crowns. While some dentists use metals or even silver amalgam fillings to address restorative concerns, porcelain is desirable because it is safe and cosmetic.

Why choose these restorations for the posterior teeth?

Inlays and onlays are best used on the posterior teeth, or the teeth in the back of the mouth. This includes molars and premolars. The anterior teeth, or the teeth in the front of the mouth, may require a different approach if areas of decay are found. In the anterior teeth, the most common solution is that of composite resin bonding. However, the posterior teeth are subjected to much stronger chewing forces, so areas of decay that are repaired should be done with strong, durable solutions such as porcelain inlays and onlays. If these restorations are not large enough, the patient may require a dental crown to be fabricated and placed over the molar or premolar to protect the tooth. Inlays and onlays are just two of the more commonly used repair solutions available with the dentists at of Esquire Dental Centres.
