Porcelain Inlays & Onlays San Francisco


Porcelain inlays and onlays are tooth colored fillings that can be placed on back teeth to repair mild decay or damage. They are matched exactly to the color of your surrounding teeth and offer an aesthetically pleasing, safe alternative to traditional fillings.


Inlays and Onlays are more conservative restorations compared to crowns because less tooth material is removed. Unlike fillings, these procedures strengthen the tooth structure and leave your smile whiter and healthier than ever before. Inlays and onlays provide strength, durability, protection and brilliance. This defines porcelain inlays and onlays. Keeping your teeth decay-free and your smile beautifully white is our focus.

What Exactly Are Onlays and Inlays?

Onlays and inlays are two types of indirect restorations that Dr. Azim uses to strengthen a tooth after it has decayed. Made of strong dental porcelain these restorations offer more coverage and protection than simple dental bonding material and are a good alternative to the more invasive dental crown procedure. Onlays and inlays are created by our lab and custom-designed to fit your tooth. They tend to last longer than regular fillings.

Inlays — High-quality porcelain restorations, that are used to replace the tooth structure that has been removed due to decay.

Onlays — often referred to as partial crowns, cover more surface area than inlays and are placed over the cusp area of teeth.
