Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are an alternative to fillings, replacing parts of the tooth that have become damaged due to decay, wear and more. They are stronger and can last longer than fillings, and are usually added to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.

What are Inlays and Onlays made of?

Inlays and onlays are made specifically for you, in a laboratory. You have an option of gold, resin and porcelain.

Where and how are they attached?

Inlays and Onlays target the back teeth, proving extra support for molars that have become damaged. They are fitted within the corners of the natural tooth or bonded over the tooth corners.

Do I need Inlays or Onlays?

If your back teeth have become damaged accidentally, or due to decay or wear, then inlays and onlays may work for you. Why not pop down to the practice for a free consultation and one of our dentists will better advise on the treatment that you require.
