Inlays & Onlays

When it comes to rectifying small dental problems there are multiple solutions available. However, if you are looking for versatile, effective, and long-lasting solution, you will want to know more about inlays and onlays. One of the benefits of inlays and onlays is they are easy to set and they don't require any recovery time. With the help of inlays and onlays, dental issues can be resolved in a fast and easy manner. To learn more about how you can benefit from inlays and onlays, visit our office at Smile Craft Dental to learn more about enhancing your smile. 


Many times, people suffer from damaged teeth. Inlays and onlays, which are also known as partial crowns or indirect fillings, can resolve specific damage, from replacing traditional fillings to repairing more extensive damage. If your smile needs repair then inlays and onlays can resolve the issue making your teeth whiter and stronger in the process. 

Inlays and onlays are beneficial for patients because they are a non-invasive procedure, requiring only removal of tooth decay using a topical anesthetic. Inlays and onlays are applied easily, placed directly on the tooth surface, and provide an exceptional permanent fit, making them ideal for those who have some apprehension about dental procedures.  


Inlays and onlays are extremely functional and can replicate the look of your natural teeth. Inlays are most often used to repair teeth which have been damaged as a result of injury or tooth decay. They can be crafted from composite or porcelain and match the color of your natural tooth or be made from gold. Onlays can be used in a like manner but unlike inlays, onlays can also be applied to the cusp of the tooth. Both can be used for teeth which have tooth decay or are fractured and need protection from future problems. Inlays and onlays, while crafted from the same materials, and extremely durable, function similarly, though on different areas of the teeth. 

Both inlays and onlays adhere to the affected tooth and remain in place like fillings or crowns. With inlays and onlays, the enamel is not compromised and they can make your teeth stronger. They function well, protecting your teeth for a long time. 


Apart from protecting the enamel of your teeth, inlays and onlays are beneficial for the repair of tooth decay or broken or fractured teeth. Using inlays and onlays keeps the roots of your teeth strong which is important to maintaining the integrity of your mouth and ensuring your natural teeth stay strong for as long as possible. When your roots are strong there is less likelihood that you will lose teeth, thus keeping your jaw and your facial structure intact. 

Inlays and onlays offer a number of benefits, restoring damaged or decayed teeth, extending the life of your teeth, strengthening and protecting teeth from further damage, preventing bacteria from getting into those hard to reach places, and enhancing your smile.
