These are the absolute best dental treatment to repair back chewing molars. These custom made fillings are made in a laboratory by a ceramic specialist from a mold of your tooth after it has been shaped for the cavity or fracture. These top notch fillings require two visits to complete the procedure. An inlay fits within the contours of the tooth and has all of the fine details of a natural tooth. The cost of an inlay is much higher than silver and composite due to the materials required to fabricate this filling as well as the additional cost of having the filling custom made in a dental laboratory by a ceramic specialist to fit your tooth precisely. Materials used to fabricate these restorations are usually porcelain. Unlike composites, inlays come with a glaze are more stain resistant and are highly resistant to wear.
