Inlays and Onlays


Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure.  Digital images are then taken of the prepared area and the inlay/onlay is then designed by Dr. Goodman and made in our Cerec milling unit. We will then bond the inlay/onlay in place.  Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won't be able to tell the difference.
