I would like to

In situations where more than half of a tooth’s biting surface has been damaged, an inlay or onlay treatment may be recommended to restore it to its correct function.

Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured restorations that are customised for your tooth in a dental lab.

What is an inlay?

An inlay is placed inside the cusp tips or biting surface of a tooth. Like a filling, it is bonded permanently to the tooth.

What is an onlay?

An onlay is more extensive than an inlay, extending over the cusps of the tooth to cover the entire chewing surface. It is an excellent alternative to a crown when a tooth has less extensive damage.

How will I know which treatment is right for me?

A consultation and exam with one of our dentists will determine if you qualify for an inlay or onlay treatment.
