Inlays and Onlays

images

Inlays and onlays are often used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay and wear. They are made in a dental office or lab and are typically placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth or molars. Inlays and onlays are very durable. They are often used when the area to be filled is too large for a regular filling, but not large enough to need a crown.
