Inlay & Onlay Restorations: Is It Right for You?

August 12, 2020 4:07 pm

What Is Inlay & Onlay Dental Restorations?

Dental inlays & onlays are non-invasive, affordable restorative treatments that can fix broken or decaying teeth quickly and easily. Once it is decided that inlays and onlays will be the best restorative treatment for you, our team will work to create your tooth restorations. We’ll ask you to come back for a follow-up appointment where you will receive your inlay or onlay restoration.

Who Should Use Inlay & Onlay Restorations?

If you have broken or fractured teeth, decay, fractured fillings, or large fillings, we can provide an inlay restoration to conservatively repair your tooth. This custom filling is made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Because we remove less of the tooth structure, inlay restorations are much more conservative than dental crowns. An onlay restoration is made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain, just like inlay restorations. They are used for many of the same reasons as inlays, but they provide a larger covering than inlays – onlays include one or more of the chewing cusps.
