Inlays & Onlays

Enhance Tooth Strength with Dental Inlays and Onlays

When more than half of a tooth’s biting surface is damaged, inlays and onlays emerge as the dental heroes to the rescue.

What are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Crafted from porcelain, gold, or composite resin, inlays and onlays are precision-made dental pieces that are bonded to the damaged area of your tooth. Each serves a unique purpose:

  • Inlays: These are similar to traditional dental fillings and are placed within the cusp tips of your tooth.

  • Onlays: Offering a more substantial reconstruction, onlays extend over one or more of the cusp of your tooth.

Material Matters

Historically, gold reigned as the material of choice for inlays and onlays. However, modern dentistry now embraces porcelain due to its strength and color-matching capabilities.

Porcelain onlays and inlays can seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, offering both durability and aesthetic appeal.

The Inlay/Onlay Procedure in Only 2 Visits


First Visit: Your dentist removes the damaged portion of the tooth, ensuring a precise fit for the inlay or onlay. An impression of your tooth is taken and sent to a lab for customization. A temporary sealant is placed on your tooth, and the second appointment is scheduled.


Second Visit: The temporary sealant is removed, and your dentist ensures a perfect fit for the inlay or onlay. Once confirmed, it’s bonded to your tooth using a robust resin, polished to a smooth finish, and seamlessly integrates with your smile.
