INLAYS / ONLAYS 

  • Inlays and onlays are a conservative alternative to full coverage dental crowns. Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, stronger, longer lasting reparative solution to tooth decay or similar damage. These restorations are beneficial from both an esthetic and functional point of view.
  • Inlays and onlays can often be used in place of traditional dental fillings to treat tooth decay or similar structural damage. Inlays and onlays are fabricated indirectly in a dental lab before being fitted and bonded to the damaged tooth by your dentist.
  • The restoration is called an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the center of a tooth. Conversely, the restoration is called an “onlay” when the extent of the damage requires inclusion of one or more cuspids (points) of the tooth or full coverage of the biting surface.
