Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth. Porcelain is the material of choice for inlays and outlays because of its strength and colour, which can often match the natural colour of your teeth.
