Dental implants are a great choice for replacing teeth. An even better solution is keeping those teeth healthy so they don’t need replacing. We provide a full range of preventive and restorative care in addition to dental implants. When a tooth can be repaired, we do so using the most conservative method, such as an inlay or onlay.
Inlays and onlays are a type of indirect filling. They are designed to fit the existing tooth structure with minimal alteration. An inlay or onlay can restore the shape and functionality of a tooth, as well as strengthen and protect it.
Inlays are used when the cusps (tips) of the tooth are undamaged. This restoration may be recommended if there is too much damage for a standard filling or the tooth needs additional strength.
Onlays are very similar to inlays but they cover a larger portion of the tooth, including all or part of the cusps. An onlay may be recommended if an inlay is insufficient, but the damage is not extensive enough to require a full crown.


The procedure for these two types of restorations is the same.
First, the tooth is prepared. This involves removing any diseased or damaged tooth structure; however, the healthy portion is left intact. Unlike a full crown, the tooth does not need to be shaped for the restoration. Instead, the restoration is shaped to fit the tooth, making it very conservative. Once the tooth is prepared, we will take an impression and fit you with a temporary inlay or onlay.
We will send the impression to a quality dental laboratory where your custom restoration will be created. Inlays and onlays are made of gold, porcelain, or composite resin. Which one we use for you depends largely on your personal preferences. Many patients choose porcelain, which is durable and can be colored to match natural enamel flawlessly. Indirect fillings made in the dental lab are typically ready for placement within ten days of your initial visit. Before bonding the inlay or onlay in place, your dentist will carefully check the appearance and the fit.
If you can feel damage in the form of pain or sensitivity, don’t delay treatment. The sooner care is obtained, the more conservative the treatment can be. Every patient has unique needs and every treatment plan at our practice is highly customized. After a comprehensive examination and an in-depth consultation we will help you choose the best treatment to meet your needs and fit your budget.
