Inlays and Onlays

You can have inlays and onlays instead of fillings. Fillings are soft to begin with and are moulded to shape in the mouth. Inlays and Onlays are made outside the mouth, usually in a dental laboratory, and then glued to the tooth at the surgery

What are the benefits

  • Inlays and Onlays are strong and can last longer than fillings.
  • They are especially suitable for the chewing surfaces of back teeth and for large repairs to front teeth where it can be difficult to make a white filling look natural.
  • Your dentist can match the colour of your teeth.
