Inlays and Onlays
 

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns that use an existing tooth as a base to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps and can be placed right on the tooth itself. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A mold is then taken and sent out to the lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin. The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth during that period. On your next visit, the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and no one will be able to tell the difference!
