Porcelain inlays and onlays are restorative solutions that can help in mildly decayed, cracked, or fractured rear tooth that is slightly damaged and does not need a crown. They allow to save the original tooth and reinstitute the function of the damaged tooth. Inlays and Onlays are customized by taking an outline of your impacted tooth.
An inlay is a small portion of material that is placed at the center of the tooth where there is mild damage. This sits at the center inside the grooves of your tooth. An onlay is used where the damage is not localized and has spread to the entire cusp (portion that is used to bite or chew) of your tooth. Though an onlay covers the entire cusp from the edges, it is not as protective as a crown which acts more like a cap and envelops the entire teeth.
Please consult your dentist to see if this restorative treatment is suitable for you.
