When there is damage or decay in a tooth, but sufficient healthy tooth structure remains, an inlay or onlay may be recommended. Both inlays and onlays are conservative tooth restorations, meaning they require much less drilling and preparation of the tooth to be placed.
Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold or composite resin. In recent years, however, porcelain (ceramics) has become increasingly popular due to its strength and natural color that blends with the teeth.
Both inlays and onlays are custom-made in a lab for a perfect fit. They require two visits for completion.
