Inlays / Onlays
Also known as indirect fillings, inlays are placed within an injured or badly damaged tooth needing more than a filling but less than a dental crown.
Inlays offer a conservative way to repair a tooth while leaving healthy tooth structure intact. In addition to saving your tooth, inlays can replace old, unsightly metal fillings.
Inlays are used on badly damaged teeth when there is not enough remaining tooth structure to support a filling and typically on back teeth where strength and durability are needed. Inlays can be made from a metal alloy or porcelain to better match the colour and translucency of your teeth.
