Inlays & Onlays

When a tooth is too damaged to be restored with a filling, but too intact to require a full dental crown, our dentist may use an “indirect filling” instead: these are called inlays or onlays.

An inlay is placed within the bounds of the existing dental cusps. An onlay, on the other hand, covers one or more of the tooth’s dental cusps. The inlay/only placement process is very similar to receiving a full crown, except that our dental team is able to preserve more of your natural dental structure.
