Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are durable partial coverage restorations that are made in the dental laboratory and are bonded over the prepared tooth surface to restore the tooth’s form, function and aesthetics. These high-strength indirect restorations are typically made from a ceramic / porcelain material or a gold alloy. Inlays and onlays that are visible will be colour matched to your natural tooth shade allowing you to retain an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Partial coverage inlays and onlays are a more conservative restorative solution than a full coverage dental crown as only a minimal amount of tooth structure needs to be removed. A dental inlay sits ‘in’ the tooth while a dental onlay is placed ‘on’ or over the tooth.
Inlays are designed to be used on moderately broken down or worn teeth. Whereas onlays are designed to replace more of the tooth for even greater protection. Inlays and onlays are designed to be used in areas where the forces of chewing and grinding are high such as premolar and molar teeth. Inlays and onlays are also used to repair teeth that have cracked or sustained minor damage in an accident or sporting injury.
