Cosmetic Dentistry — Inlays & Onlays
If one-third to one-half of your molar tooth’s biting surface is decayed or has a filling that needs replacing, an inlay or onlay may be a better option than a filling. These restorations are best used when more than a filling is needed but less than a crown will do. An inlay is placed in between the cusps of the tooth whereas an onlay will cover one or more of the cusps. They can be made of a gold alloy, porcelain or tooth-colored resin and are cemented into place.
