What are Inlays & Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown but is too serious to be repaired with a filling, our experienced dentists may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. 

Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom created from porcelain, composite resin material or gold. Our dentists will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay perfectly fits your tooth to restore the health, function and appearance of your smile. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.

What's the Difference Between Inlays & Onlays?

 The difference between a dental inlay and a dental onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth.


While a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. We will help you determine whether you need a dental inlay or onlay to restore your smile.
