Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used in molars or premolars, when the tooth has experienced too much damage to support a basic filling but not so much damage that a crown is necessary.
Minimally Invasive Tooth Restoration
Inlays and Onlays are made outside of the mouth as a single solid piece that fits the specific size and shape of the cavity and then cemented in place in the tooth. They can be made from similar materials used for crowns including porcelain, composite, resin or gold.
Inlays repair damage or decay in the ridges of teeth whereas Onlays repair damage or decay to more than one cusp of the tooth. Both are custom-fitted, made in a dental lab and generally require two visits.
Both Inlays and Onlays are strong and durable and can give the restored tooth a natural aesthetic appearance.
