Types of Dental Veneers
We offer our patients the choice of two types of veneers – Porcelain and Composite.
Porcelain inlays are an indirect restoration (filling) made of a solid porcelain substance. This is fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.

An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it incorporates a replacement for a tooth cusp by covering the area where the missing cusp would be.
More commonly used to replace congenitally missing teeth in young mouths that are not ready for final implant and crown restorations until age 21.
