Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. We use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An onlay is done when there is damage to the cusps of the tooth. An inlay is done when the cusps of the tooth/teeth are not involved. 

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A impression of the tooth is then taken and sent to our dental lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain or gold.  The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth during that time. During your next visit, the inlay or onlay will be placed in your tooth and set with cement.
