Inlays And Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays give your back teeth strength and added protection if they have been affected by decay or have worn down over time.

Inlays and onlays sit on top of the back teeth, sealing any holes or cavities that are too big for a filling. They can be made from a variety of materials such as precious metal or porcelain – however most patients opt for tooth-coloured options to blend in with the natural teeth.

An inlay is cemented within the four corners (or cusps) of a back tooth, whilst an onlay slightly overlaps the corners of the tooth, providing extra coverage. Unlike with fillings and dental crowns, minimal preparation is required on a natural tooth prior to application of an inlay or onlay.

Inlays and onlays serve a variety of functions, including:

  • Protecting a tooth damaged by decay
  • Protecting a tooth that has been worn down by grinding or clenching
  • Reducing sensitivity
  • Replacing silver amalgam fillings
