Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are minimally invasive dental restorations allowing you to restore small to moderate decay without sacrificing the appearance of your smile. These forms of oral treatment limit the required dental tissue removed and are therefore a safer and a non-toxic alternative to the traditional Amalgam filling. Carseldine Dental endorses the utilisation of Porcelain Inlays and Onlays due to their minimally invasive application method and the aesthetic and functional benefits they provide patients.

These two innovative Cosmetic Dentistry procedures differ only in the areas being treated. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are utilised in the treatment of:

  • PORCELAIN INLAYS-Small amounts of decay may be amended through the technique of Porcelain Inlays. Decay found on one or two top surfaces of the tooth can be repaired in this way.
  • PORCELAIN ONLAYS-Medium amounts of decay may be restored through the technique of Porcelain Onlays. Decay must be located in the cusp or chewing surface of the affected tooth.

Utilised as opposed to a traditional Silver / Amalgam filling, Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are longer lasting, aesthetically pleasing, non-toxic, minimally invasive and provide exceptional stability and support for the patient. Both Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are conservative dental treatments and do not impact your general wellbeing. Each requires only minimal removal of healthy dental tissue and both treatment methods are completely Mercury free. Traditional Amalgam fillings are comprised of fifty percent Mercury, the most toxic substance in existence. Mercury is continually leaking from older Amalgam fillings and can be absorbed by the body. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are completely safe dental restorations and are longer lasting than traditional fillings. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays offer exceptional aesthetic and functional benefits to patients.

Carseldine Dental is a completely Mercury free practice and is dedicated to providing the very best dentistry has to offer.
