Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are typically used as alternatives to dental crowns. Inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, durable, longer-lasting solution to tooth decay or similar damage.

Oftentimes, inlays and onlays are used in place of traditional dental fillings to treat tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, 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. On the other hand, the restoration is referred to as an "onlay" when the extent of the damage requires inclusion of one or more cusps of the tooth or full coverage of the biting surface.
