Inlays / Onlays

A Beautiful Practice For All Your Dental Needs

Inlays and onlays are like partial crowns that strengthen and protect your teeth. If the tooth cusps are fine, it’s called an inlay. When there’s more damage, it’s called an onlay. 

Here’s how it works: 

  • Remove the decay. 
  • Take a mold of your tooth. 
  • Dental lab makes a restoration from porcelain, gold, or resin, taking 2-3 weeks. 
  • Temporary inlay/onlay is placed. 
  • On your next visit, the permanent one is cemented in. Your tooth looks natural, and no one can tell the difference.
