As the home of cosmetic dentistry and implants, at Ringway Dental we take pride in every restoration we place, including inlays and onlays.

What are inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays perform a very similar function to a filling, and can help restore function to a tooth that has developed a cavity due to decay or injury.

What is the difference between a filling and an inlay and an onlay?

We use inlays and onlays in cases where a simple filling won’t suffice. Made in a dental laboratory, inlays and onlays are designed according to the shape of your tooth or teeth and are then attached using a special dental adhesive. Inlays and onlays also require multiple visits to the practice, and are usually applied over two appointments.

What is the difference between an inlay and an onlay?

Inlays are designed to sit inside the tooth. In this way they fill the hole that has been created by damage or decay and replace the part of the tooth that has been removed. Inlays are often used on teeth at the back of the mouth that have a much larger surface area and are used for chewing.

Onlays are also designed to fill a hole in the tooth, but they are intended to repair the ‘cusp’ or top surface of the tooth. This is the part of the tooth that is most visible and so they need to recreate and mimic the shape and surface of the natural tooth. Onlays also need to provide strength and support to the rest of the tooth.
