These are restorations that are fabricated in a dental lab.
A dental inlay is much like a filling, only it is made at a lab and cemented into place at a second appointment. Materials used include porcelain or gold. Inlays are usually used for back teeth.
An onlay restoration covers, protects or reinforces one or more cusps of a tooth.
Advantages of dental inlays:
Unless gold is used, the restoration is very natural looking.
Very durable & long lasting.
Material used does not stain.
- The affected tooth is well sealed to prevent decay.
