Inlays and onlays are viable options for those who have very deep cavities or who need to restore a tooth that has broken but don’t necessarily want or need a full crown. The prosthetic gets placed either in the cusp of the tooth or on top of the crown to achieve a beautiful, flawless finish.
What are Inlays and Onlays?
Inlays and onlays are made using a tooth-colored material, usually porcelain or ceramic, and they are placed in the cusps of the tooth (inlay) or on top of the crown of the tooth (onlay) so that you have a gorgeous tooth that looks completely natural. The inlay or onlay that you have placed will last for years with proper care.
What are the Benefits of this Procedure?
There are a multitude of reasons you might want to consider an inlay or onlay for your tooth health. These reasons include:
- You have a deep filling or cavity that needs a more durable option
- Your tooth has broken, chipped or cracked and needs to be restored
- You want an option that looks and feels completely natural when placed in the mouth
