Inlays and Onlays








Inlays and onlays are two excellent ways of repairing a damaged or decayed tooth, usually a back tooth. They’re good repair options when the tooth doesn’t need a crown, but does need strengthening as well as filling. Inlays and onlays strengthen the tooth by being bonded to it, unlike standard fillings, which traditionally are not bonded, but just tightly fitted in the cavity.

Inlays – are needed when the tooth damage is contained within the tips of the tooth and Onlays – are needed if the damage extends over the tips and covers part of the tooth’s outside surface, but not so extensively as to require a crown.

Porcelain inlays and onlays are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, giving your teeth a natural luster and blending imperceptibly with the natural tooth.
