Dental Inlays and Onlays Near You
When the tops of your teeth are badly damaged or compromised, our dentists may recommend a restoration known as an inlay or onlay.
These restorations can be fully matched to the colour and shape of your tooth or teeth, providing an appealing and functional new surface.
What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Although they’re often confused with dental crowns, inlays and onlays work slightly differently. While crowns cover the entire tooth from the chewing surface to the gum lines, inlays and onlays are restorations that cover only the chewing surface. An inlay covers the area between the cusps of the teeth (the raised ridges). Inlays and onlays are most often used for the molars and premolars because they are designed to sit flat against the topmost surface of the tooth.
