Questions & answers

Dental inlays & onlays

What are inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are types of dental restorations that work to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. The restoration material fills and covers the damaged or decayed areas to restore your oral health.

What is the difference between inlays and onlays?

Inlays work in a smaller area and fill damage inside the tooth. Onlays not only fill in damage but also work for a larger area, including the surface of the tooth.

What is the difference between getting an inlay or onlay and getting a filling?

Dental fillings are great for minor damages or small cavities. Dental inlays and onlays are able to repair larger damages. Inlays and onlays typically require two appointments, while dental fillings only require one.

Dental inlays & onlays

What are inlays and onlays

If you experience moderate tooth damage or decay, our dentists might recommend dental inlays and onlays to repair the damage. Inlays and onlays are used when the damage is too severe to be fixed with a dental filling but not severe enough to require a dental crown. These restorations are made of porcelain, composite resin or gold. Inlays and onlays will be shaped to fit your teeth perfectly and function just as your natural teeth do.

Inlays vs. onlays

Inlays and onlays are both used to repair tooth damage. When the damage does not reach the cusp of the tooth, inlays will be used. When the damage does reach the cusp and takes up a larger area, onlays will be used. Our dentists will determine which restoration will be best for your specific situation. If you have any questions, please call Children & Family Dentistry & Braces today so we can get you scheduled for an appointment.
