Onlays and Inlays are a restorative treatment similar to composite fillings that plenty of our patients here in Logan choose for their tooth restoration. Onlays/Inlay use gold, titanium, or porcelain instead of plastic resin.
These features are less likely than fillings to stain or discolor and are tailored to fit an exact space, and then bonded to the tooth making them customized care for your smile. Schedule an appointment today for an Onlay/Inlay consultation.
What is the Difference Between An Onlay and Inlay?
Both Onlay/Inlay are applied in the same way. When decay is located between teeth this is a great solution to repair the teeth because it is considered a more conservative approach to repairing teeth and preserving as much of the tooth as possible.
The main difference between an onlay and an inlay is the spot on the tooth being repaired. An Onlay covers the cusp, or top of the tooth while the Inlay only covers between the cusps.
