Inlays & Onlays

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and Onlays - Fremont, California

A dental inlay is custom-made to restore a tooth to health and function after the decayed portion has been removed.

Inlays and onlays are restorations that are fitted to a cavity in a tooth and bonded in place. For larger cavities they are stronger and more durable than a regular filling. They may be used to restore a broken tooth or may replace an existing large filling. They are used when the damage is not severe enough to require a crown.

An inlay is used for filling in the cavity area and an onlay is placed over the tooth to cover and strengthen it.
