A ceramic filling (also called inlay/onlay) is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures. Aesthetic and durable, ceramic is an exceptional material, able to resist heavy grinding pressures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then restored with ceramic.
Because ceramic fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth and are aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. They are also especially suitable for the chewing surfaces of back teeth.
