Inlays and Onlays

dental inlays and onlaysDental inlays are an alternative restorative procedure for back teeth with minor to moderate decay. An inlay is similar to a traditional amalgam filling as it is placed within the cusps of the chewing surface of your back teeth, where as an onlay is used to restore a larger surface area and may cover one or more tooth cusps.

Several attributes have led to the increased use of inlays and dental onlays. They are a durable long-term solution. Additionally they are a more conservative option than a full dental crown, which is utilised when only minimal tooth structure remains.
