Dental Inlays & Onlays

WHAT ARE INLAYS AND ONLAYS?

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that help teeth that are mostly intact. They are typically made of porcelain or composite resin, and they fill in or cover places in the tooth that have been damaged by decay or injury.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INLAYS AND ONLAYS?

Inlays go more into the grooves of your teeth, between the cusps. Onlays, on the other hand, cover more of the chewing surface of your teeth.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GETTING AN INLAY OR ONLAY AND GETTING A FILLING?

Dental fillings are for small cavities and can usually be filled in a single appointment. Dental inlays and onlays take care of teeth that have larger damaged areas. They also tend to take two dental appointments, as you will receive a temporary inlay or onlay first and a permanent one during your second appointment.
