Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are a partial restoration option that covers the tooth with a durable material.
Inlays and onlays are bonded over a prepared tooth surface to restore the tooth’s form, function and aesthetic appeal.
Both inlays and onlays can be made from ceramic porcelain or a gold alloy and can be colour matched to your existing teeth.
A dental inlay sits in the tooth while an onlays is placed on/over the tooth. Inlays are used to treat minor to moderately damaged teeth while onlays are used to treat greater damage to the tooth with more protection.
