Dental Inlays and Dental Onlays are frequently used to restore teeth that are severely damaged by decay or wear. They are usually applied to the chewing surfaced of the back teeth. They provide more strength than a filling and are more conservative than a full dental crown.
A porcelain dental inlay or dental onlay is fabricated to fit your tooth precisely and is bonded tightly in place to strengthen and protect the damaged tooth. Like a dental crown, a dental inlay or dental onlay covers and protects the tooth’s biting surface. Where a dental crown covers the entire tooth, a dental inlay or dental onlay fits inside the tooth cusps and covers only the biting surfaces. Because a dental inlay or dental onlay is fabricated in a dental laboratory, it takes two or more appointments to restore a tooth with a porcelain dental inlay or dental onlay.
