When a tooth experiences decay or another type of damage, you may have several available options for restoring the tooth’s structure and health. The four main options are fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. Our dentists are committed to ensuring that you understand the benefits for the restorations that are recommended to restore your teeth and your smile. We strive to provide the most conservative restoration available in order to maintain your natural, healthy tooth structure intact.
If a tooth suffers from sufficient damage, yet not extensive enough to require a crown, our dentists may recommend a dental inlay or onlay over a composite filling. Sometimes called partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom made to fit the tooth and replace only the part of the tooth that is damaged, whereas a dental crown replaces the entire tooth structure.
Both inlays and onlays are used to restore a damaged tooth when a filling may not provide the strength to protect the tooth long term. A dental inlay is used when the decay or damage is contained within the cusps (points) of the tooth, while a dental onlay is used to restore one or more of the tooth cusps.
