Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations used to repair mild to moderately decayed, fractured or cracked back teeth. An inlay is like a dental filling because it fits inside the top edges of a tooth. An onlay is used for more extensive repairs; it extends over the edges of the affected tooth.

Why inlays & onlays?

Patients who receive inlays and onlays have too much decay or extensive damage to the tooth for a dental filling, but still have enough of a healthy tooth structure that does not warrant a crown placement. Inlays and onlays allow your Dr. Teeth Houston dentist to complete the restoration while preserving more of the tooth.

Benefits of Inlays & Onlays

There are additional benefits to choosing inlays and onlays over traditional metal fillings.

  • The durable construction is tough and made to last for up to three decades of hard-wear.
  • Inlays and onlays add about 75 percent added strength to teeth.
  • Dental inlays and onlays will prolong the life of a tooth and eliminate the need for future dental restorative treatments.
  • When old dental fillings need to be replaced or removed, inlays and onlays are sometimes the reparative option.
