A tooth inlay or onlay is a porcelain, gold, or composite resin filling, much like a traditional tooth filling. Tooth onlay or inlays are used to restore a tooth that has been damaged partially due to decay or chipping. In most cases, the more than half of the tooth biting surface is damaged when an inlay or onlay is recommended. These dental treatments are able to strengthen the tooth's surface. At Concerned Dental, we offer a wide variety of restorative dentistry options, including inlays and onlays for damaged teeth. Visit our dental office in New York to determine if you're a good candidate for this treatment option.
Dental inlays are attached to the surface of the tooth and are recommended when a patient has less severe damage to the tooth.
A dental onlay is used for a more substantial tooth reconstruction and extends beyond the cusp of the tooth.
Dental inlays or onlays are often used when a tooth has suffered damage that is not extensive enough to warrant a dental crown. Inlays or onlays are often preferred over traditional fillings because they can last a long time and do not reduce the tooth's structural strength.
