What are inlays & onlays?
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are done when more than half of the tooth’s biting surface is damaged. At the Advanced Dental Group of Edgewater in New Jersey, we notice that inlays and onlays are most commonly needed when there is tooth decay present, or a fracturing of the tooth has occurred.
An inlay is typically used for procedures where less enamel is needed, and onlays will normally fill larger voids left by cavities or other trauma to the tooth. Like fillings, inlays and onlays are tooth colored and very resilient thanks to their material makeup of porcelain, gold, or composite resin.
