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.
