Inlays and Onlays in

There are times when a tooth has damage that is too extensive to be treated with a traditional filling — but not severe enough to require the full coverage of a dental crown. In these cases, the best option may be an inlay or onlay.

Inlays and Onlays in Dumont

Inlays and onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are dental restorations that are used to repair damage to a tooth’s chewing surface. Unlike traditional fillings, inlays and onlays are created outside of the mouth and then bonded to the tooth.

The main benefits of inlays and onlays include:

  • Helping a tooth remain strong and intact
  • Adding to the overall strength of a tooth
  • Restoring the health of a tooth

An inlay or onlay may be recommended to replace an old filling or if there is moderate damage to the chewing surface of a tooth. An inlay or onlay will restore the chewing surface so that the tooth has a healthy appearance and can be used normally. While inlays and onlays are very similar types of restorations, there is one major distinction between the two. An onlay will cover least one of the tooth’s points, while an inlay lies between them.

After receiving an inlay or onlay, your tooth will appear healthy and natural. These restorations are strong, long-lasting, and require no more care than any other tooth.
