Smylife’s Tooth Fillings for Very Large Cavities
Inlays and onlays are best suited to teeth that require very large fillings. An onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to biggest cavities. For many years, gold has been used to make inlays and onlays because it is a hard material and lasts for a long time. Nowadays, tooth-coloured porcelain is also used and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.
With the help of impressions taken of your teeth, inlays and onlays can be made in a dental laboratory by a technician.
