Inlays & Onlays
There are many kinds of inlays created for different areas of the mouth with materials ranging from gold to porcelain or composite. An Inlay is a stronger alternative to a filling and is used on teeth that are heavily damaged or have been previously restored. The broken or decayed tooth is prepared. An Inlay is made and fitted to the tooth. White or Gold inlays are available.
Depending on the extent of the repair required sometimes the full top surface of the tooth is removed. A Full Onlay is then produced to replace the biting surface.
