Inlay and Onlays
What it is
A dental inlay or onlay is used when the damage or decay is entirely contained within the cusps or the raised portion of the tooth surface. It makes use of a special type of filling that addresses cavities and other types of damage.
A dental inlay is a pre-molded filling fitted into the grooves of your tooth as opposed to an onlay which is for repairing a tooth with more extensive damage that spreads to the cusp or biting surface. Inlays are intended to cover cavities, while onlays cover the higher points around the edges of your tooth. Onlays and inlays remain a valuable restorative procedure until this day in the dental community, and you can expect a rather quick recovery time.
