Inlays & Onlays

If a standard filling isn’t suitable, your dentist may recommend an inlay or onlay (sometimes called overlay, too). They’re more suitable for larger chewing surfaces, such as your back teeth. Inlays fit into the hole in your tooth, while onlays build up the shape of the tooth.

They can be made from metal, composite or porcelain. Porcelain may be ideal if you're looking for something that's practically invisible.

Restore Tooth Integrity & Fuction

Similar to fillings, inlays and onlays are used to restore a tooth’s integrity and function following damage. The difference being that, whereas a standard filling is applied directly into/onto your tooth and hardens in your mouth, inlays and onlays are custom-made in the laboratory and then cemented in place.
