An inlay is a form of tooth restoration, just like fillings, crowns, and implants. Typically, an inlay is used when a cavity is too big for just a simple filling. Inlays are primarily made of porcelain and are custom made to fit the exact size and shape of your cavity.
Onlays are also used to restore teeth. Just like inlays, they are usually made of porcelain since it resembles the natural color of teeth. Onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They are created as an individual, solid pieces that cover the cusp of your tooth. Come visit us just across the street from our local fire department on E 2000 N and find out how you can benefit from these restorations today!
What’s the difference between inlay/onlay?
While both onlays and inlays restore teeth and treat cavities, there is a slight difference between the two. Onlays are used to cover the cusps, or hard eminence, of your teeth. When these chewing cusps have been affected by a cavity, they need to be included in the restoration.
Other than the difference of treating cusps, inlays and onlays are essentially identical.
