Inlay Onlay

Inlay Onlay

Inlay or Onlay can be used when damages to the tooth is too large to fill with fillings but not as extensive enough to need a crown.

Inlay and Onlay is fabricated outside of the mouth using Cad Cam system like CEREC or sending to the dental lab. Inlay and Onlay material is made out of ceramic or can be made with gold which is more stronger than filling material that can last longer.

It is called Inlay when restoration fits within the cusp of the tooth or called Onlay when restoration goes over the cusp of the tooth.
