Inlays and onlays repair moderately decayed teeth or cracked teeth which are not damaged enough to need a crown, but too damaged to require a filling. They are a less expensive option than our Dental Crowns and preserve more of your natural tooth. Inlays and onlays can be crafted from either porcelain or composite resin.
About Inlays and Onlays
Common uses for inlays and outlays are replacing old, worn, and used fillings. Unlike fillings or bondings, inlays and onlays must be specifically designed and crafted, and then bonded to the tooth. Inlays function similarly to fillings, in that they are bonded inside the cusp tips of the tooth. Onlays on the other hand, cover the outer edge of the tooth.
