Dental inlays and onlays are long-lasting dental restorations that fortify damaged or decayed teeth. Inlays and onlays are stronger than traditional dental fillings, yet less invasive than dental crowns. If you’re looking for a conservative and effective solution to restore your healthy smile, ask our doctors about inlays and onlays.
Inlays vs. Onlays: What’s the Difference?
An inlay is bonded material that remains within the tooth’s center. Restorations that cover the complete biting surface or one or more cusps of the tooth are onlays. Your knowledgeable dentists will help you choose between an inlay or onlay based on the extent and nature of your dental damage.
The Endless Advantages of Inlays and Onlays

Save your Enamel | We want to help our patients preserve every piece of their healthy natural smile possible. If you choose to protect your teeth with an inlay or onlay, very little enamel removal is required. We are able to make your inlay or onlay procedure both precise and conservative.
