At Sai Dental Care, we specialize in getting damaged smiles back in shape with little or no downtime. Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured teeth that cannot be treated with a traditional filling but don’t require a full crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s original tooth structure.
Inlays and onlays are strong and durable, and they help to strengthen teeth by up to 75 percent. Inlays and onlays can also prolong tooth life and prevent the need for further dental treatment in the future.
Inlays are used to repair the large chewing surface between the points of a back tooth and to treat larger cavities where a traditional filling wouldn’t be strong enough. Inlays are made of natural-looking, tooth-colored material such as ceramic/porcelain or special dental composite.
An onlay is larger than an inlay and fits within the grooves of the tooth, but wraps up and over at least one of the cusps, covering more of the tooth's surface.Made of natural-looking materials, they can improve the strength, function and look of teeth.
