Dental Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are dental materials used to repair damage on a tooth’s surface that is suffering from decay. They are typically used to repair damage that is too extensive for fillings to fix, but is not severe enough to require a dental crown; this is because fillings are typically used for more minor to moderate tooth repairs, and crowns are used to fix significant damage to the tooth.

Inlays vs. Onlays

An inlay is used within the cusp tips of the tooth; an onlay is similar to an inlay but extends over one or more cusps of a tooth instead of within the cusp of a single tooth. Both can be used to restore teeth that have been damaged by injury or tooth decay.

Benefits of Inlays and Onlays:

  • Repairs damaged teeth
  • Strong and durable alternative to fillings
  • Lasts significantly longer than fillings
  • Offers the protection of a crown without as much preparation needed for the tooth
  • Porcelain and composite resin inlays and onlays blend in with your natural smile
