Inlays and Onlays

A porcelain or resin inlay or onlay is used when the cavity is too big for a filling, but isn't so big that a crown is required. An inlay is a subtle tooth-coloured restoration which can fill large cavities and repair damaged teeth and is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Onlays (also known as overlays) will overlay one or more cusps in order to protect and strengthen the tooth.
