Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are used to repair moderately damaged or decayed teeth. These are used when a tooth is too damaged for a filling, but not sufficiently damaged to require a crown. The inlays and onlays allow as much of the tooth as possible to saved, while strengthening the tooth and protecting it against further damage.

Dental Inlay - Placed in the center area of the tooth.
Dental Onlay - Placed on the inside and outside areas of the tooth.
