Inlays and onlays are often more durable than traditional fillings and can help strengthen the tooth and prevent the need for further dental treatment in the future. Inlays and onlays are used on teeth where there has been a significant loss of tooth structure, but insufficient weakening or structural loss to warrant a crown.

Inlays and onlays need to be make in a laboratory, os if you require one, we will first prepare your tooth, then take an impression to send off. We will send you home with a temporary filling in this area and when the inlay or onlay is ready, we can cement it on to your tooth as we would with a crown.
