Understanding the Limitations of Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are a common choice for treating cavities. However, they may not be the best option for back teeth, which endure the brunt of chewing. Here's why:

Material Limitations

Composite materials can fold during the filling process. This folding might create tiny gaps or voids, which can lead to the filling's failure or recurrent tooth decay in a short period.

Durability Concerns

Back teeth require a robust solution due to the heavy chewing pressure. Composite fillings might not withstand this pressure over time, leading to more frequent dental visits.

The Advantages of Ceramic Inlays

Ceramic inlays offer a superior alternative for your back teeth:

Precision and Fit

We use advanced CAD/CAM technology to design inlays that fit your teeth precisely. This accuracy ensures a snug fit, reducing the risk of decay and prolonging the life of the restoration.

Strength and Durability

Ceramic inlays are made from a homogeneous e.max ceramic material, renowned for its strength. They can withstand the pressures of chewing, making them a lasting solution.


The e.max ceramic material is more compatible with your natural tooth structure. This compatibility minimizes the risk of irritation and ensures a healthier oral environment.

Aesthetic Appeal

Ceramic inlays blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing solution compared to traditional fillings.

Invest in Your Dental Health

Choosing ceramic inlays for your back teeth is an investment in your long-term dental health. With their durability, precision, and biocompatibility, they offer a reliable solution that keeps your smile healthy and bright.
