An inlay is a ceramic filling made by a dental technician. They are used when a cavity is too large for a normal composite filling but not quite large enough to justify a crown.
Tooth veneers are individually and expertly manufactured ceramic (porcelain) facings which are cemented on to teeth to improve appearance.
The rationale for veneers is that they provide a relatively conservative solution to discoloured, chipped, crowded or spaced teeth.
Smile design is the process of planning and making a new and improved smile for a patient.
The 3 basic concepts in smile design are symmetry, proportion and colour. I work with my highly skilled dental technician to achieve the most natural and attractive smiles possible.
