Porcelain dental inlays and onlays are innovative restorations designed to repair teeth that have suffered damage or decay. If your tooth damage is not extensive enough to require a full crown but too severe for a simple filling, our experienced dentist might recommend a dental inlay or onlay. These restorations, often referred to as partial crowns, are custom-made from porcelain, composite resin or gold. Dr. Gregory Davis will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay fits your tooth perfectly, restoring its health, function and appearance. Once in place, they are virtually undetectable and help conserve much of your natural tooth structure.

Both inlays and onlays serve to repair damaged teeth. The key difference lies in the extent of the damage they address. An inlay is used when the damage is confined between the cusps (or pointed tips) of the tooth, whereas an onlay is necessary when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. Our dentist will help you determine whether a dental inlay or onlay is the best option to restore your smile. Inlays and onlays typically require two appointments with our dentist to complete.
