Inlays and Onlays
Following the loss of natural tooth structure, there are multiple treatments that our doctors can use to restore strength and structure to your smile. Inlays and onlays are customizable pre-formed fillings that allow you to bite with confidence following cavity treatment or another situation that leaves a tooth compromised.
Inlays are smaller than onlays and fit within an excavated space on the surface of a tooth (typically a molar). Onlays (sometimes called partial crowns) are larger and replace a significant portion of the chewing surface of a molar, which could mean one or more cusps. The use of an inlay over an onlay will depend on the extent and location of your lost tooth structure.
