Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are a great treatment for when something more substantial than a filling is needed but less intrusive than a crown.


Inlays are used to repair the large chewing surface of a back tooth and to mend larger cavities where a conventional filling wouldn’t be strong enough. These chewing surfaces can often develop cavities as they do contain quite deep fissures that can easily trap plaque and food.

An onlay is similar to an inlay, just a little larger. It can repair a cavity right in the central part of the chewing surface as well as one or more of the tooth cusps. These are the raised points on the tooth.


How are inlay and onlays prepared?

We will need to carefully prepare the tooth before taking a detailed impression that will be sent to our dental laboratory to be handcrafted from either composite, porcelain or gold.

How long will they last?

One of the main benefits of inlays and onlays is how durable and long-lasting they can be. You can expect an inlay to last anywhere between 5 and 30 years.

How do I care for inlays or onlays?

Brushing twice a day, flossing every day, and following any special recommendations from the dentist.
