Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair your teeth, and improve their function and appearance. We offer inlay and onlay services at our Richmond Hill office.

Inlays

An inlay restoration is a custom-made filling made of porcelain material. Inlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma.

Inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and porcelain fillings. Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays.

Benefits of Inlays

  • Restores broken or fractured teeth
  • Restores decayed teeth
  • Restores fractured fillings
  • Improves the aesthetic look of your smile 

Onlays

An onlay restoration is a custom-made filling made of porcelain material. An onlay is sometimes also referred to as a partial crown.

Onlays can be used to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or that have been damaged by decay or trauma. They are an ideal alternative to crowns (caps) because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of onlays. Onlays are essentially identical to inlays with the exception that one or more of the chewing cusps have also been affected and need to be included in the restoration.

Benefits of Onlays

  • Restores broken or fractured teeth
  • Restores decayed teeth
  • Improves the aesthetic look of your smile 
  • Restores fractured or large fillings
