Inlays & Onlays
An Inlay or Onlay is a porcelain or lab made composite filling (either part or full) bonded into place to protect the tooth from chewing.
Inlays and Onlays are custom made in our lab by our technicians to fit into or over the tooth. They are used when there is insufficient tooth structure to support a directly placed filling.
This is carried out over two appointments, the first of which is to prepare the tooth, take impressions and place a temporary inlay. At the second appointment the permanent porcelain Inlay or Onlay is bonded to the tooth.
