Inlays / Onlays - Dental Restorations

Partial Dental Crown Restorations

Chandler Dentist - dental restoration with Inlay

Dental inlays and onlays are custom restorations for the biting and chewing surface of a tooth and are used when most of the crown is still intact. Inlays and onlays can be made from tooth-colored porcelain, metal or gold. They are modeled to look and function like the original tooth surface that they replace.

The difference between an inlay and onlay is that the inlay lies between the cusps (e.g. the ridges of the tooth’s biting surface) and the onlay  covers one or more cusps and is a more extensive restoration.  Inlays and onlays are conservative restorations requiring less extensive preparation than a full crown. Both inlays and onlays are cemented onto the tooth’s surface.
