Inlays & Onlays
We like to think of porcelain inlays and onlays as the stop between the filling and crown on the tooth restoration train. Inlays and onlays can be used when you have a big cavity, or if the whole bite surface of a tooth needs to be replaced. Onlays cover all four cusps of a tooth, while inlays replace other parts of the tooth, like a deeper section between the cusps, or a corner.
