Inlays / Onlay

Different types of Dentures

The three main types of dentures are:

Why Install Dental Inlays/Onlays?

If you have a tooth that is damaged or decayed, but not enough to warrant a dental crown, then an inlay or onlay can be the right treatment for you. Inlays and onlays are made from impressions of your teeth, so they fit perfectly and blend in with your natural teeth. They are bonded to your teeth using strong dental adhesives, and they can last for many years with proper care.

What Is the Difference Between Inlays and Onlays?

The main difference between inlays and onlays is their size and shape. Inlays are small, round, or square-shaped pieces of dental material that are used to fill in a small area of tooth decay. Onlays, on the other hand, are larger restoration that can be used to repair bigger areas of damage, such as a cracked tooth or a tooth with a large cavity. In some cases, an inlay can be all that is needed to restore a damaged tooth. However, if the damage is more extensive, an onlay may be required.

Benefits Of Inlays & Onlays


Dental inlays and onlays are made from materials that match the colour of your natural teeth, so they blend in seamlessly.


With proper care, inlays and onlays can last for many years. They are bonded to your teeth using strong dental adhesives, and they are much more durable than direct fillings.

Conservative Treatment

Inlays and onlays offer a more conservative treatment option than dental crowns, as they require less removal of healthy tooth structure.

Improved Oral Health

Dental inlays and onlays can help to improve your oral health by restoring the function and strength of your teeth. They can also help to prevent further decay and damage.
