Inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings, fabricated by a technician, and bonded to the tooth to replace missing tooth structure, where a conventional filling is not appropriate.
Inlays/Onlays are often used when a tooth suffers extensive damage such as from decay or fracture, but the impact isn’t extensive enough to require a full crown.
Both inlays and onlays are indirect restorations and are made outside of the mouth before being bonded onto the affected tooth. In many instances, the bonding process improves the strength of the damaged tooth and helps seal the inlay/onlay to the tooth.
