Inlays and onlays are permanent restorations milled out of porcelain or cast with gold.
Inlays/Onlays are custom made for your tooth. They are restorations that allow for longevity of the tooth. Inlays/Onlays require minimal tooth structure to be removed.
Fillings are cheaper. Why do I want an Inlay or an Onlay?
Inlays and onlays are a better restoration in certain circumstances because:
- They support the missing tooth structure better than a filling would
- The contours of these are more ideal than fillings because they are made in a dental laboratory.
- Inlays and Onlays have better longevity than fillings because they are made from a stronger material that replicates the enamel that is replacing.
- They have better aesthetics than a filling. Porcelain reflects light better than composite; inlays and onlays look more like natural tooth structure.
