About Onlays and Inlays

Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or gold are the most long-lasting and esthetically pleasing way to restore your tooth when there is structural damage caused by decay and cracks. Unlike fillings, which are directly molded into place in your mouth, inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab before they are fitted and bonded into place.

Inlays fit within the grooves on the cusps of your teeth. Onlays, which are larger than inlays, also fit within those grooves but wrap up and over the cusps to cover more of your tooth’s surface.

An onlay is the best option when your tooth has extensive damage and the restoration needs to cover an entire chewing surface that includes one or more cusps. The team at Nevins Dental Center will help you determine which restoration is best for you.

Dr. Nevins did a thorough review of my medical history and then gave me an exam.
We were able to define a first step that made sense. He also put to rest some of the fears that had been caused by the first provider.
