What are Inlays & Onlays?
Inlays and onlays are an indirect restoration or filling used when the teeth are too damaged to be repaired by normal dental fillings, but not damaged enough to require a dental crown.
They are constructed beforehand, outside the mouth with a special tooth coloured material such as ceramic or porcelain, to fit a specifically sized and shaped cavity.
Once the filling has been constructed, it is then cemented to the inside or outside of the tooth.
An inlay is made to fit inside the tooth whereas, in contrast, an onlay is made to fit inside the tooth but extends outside to the surface area of the tooth.
Both inlays and onlays are increasingly being constructed out of tooth coloured material to preserve the natural aesthetic appearance of the tooth.
