INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Dental inlays and onlays are restorations that repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracking. They are often recommended when your tooth is too damaged for a filling but has enough healthy structure to avoid the need for a crown. Inlays fit between the cusps of your tooth while onlays are larger and can cover the cusps. Both restorations are usually made from porcelain, composite resin, or metal, with the first two being available in shades that match your natural teeth.
Inlays and onlays are stronger than fillings and more conservative than crowns, making them the ideal option in-between a filling and a crown. Your dentist will suggest when these are suitable leaving you to make the decision of the material you wish to have. Why not contact us today to see how we can help.
