What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are not just stronger fillings; they are precision-crafted dental restorations. Inlays are designed to fit neatly within the cusps of a damaged tooth, providing a durable, bonded solution. Onlays, which can be referred to as 3/4 crowns or partial crowns, cover more extensive damage and extend over the tooth's chewing surface, protecting vital cusps. Both are much more conservative than full crowns and are focused on preserving healthy tooth structure.

Advantages of Inlays and Onlays Over Crowns

Our inlays and onlays provide durable, well-sealed restorations while conserving your natural tooth structure. Advances in dental materials and techniques allow us to bond porcelain directly to the tooth, preserving more of your tooth’s strength and integrity. This approach is a cornerstone of biomimetic dentistry, which aims to maintain your natural teeth for as long as possible, offering a more conservative option compared to traditional crowns.
