Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are unique restoration procedures that involve bonding a restoration to a tooth in a manner that strengths that tooth, as opposed to weakening it like many other restoration options do. Inlays and onlays might be suggested by your dentist if you are experiencing tooth decay or damage.
Dental inlays are a prosthetic that is generally made with porcelain or ceramic, but can also be made with gold, that are placed inside the grooves of the biting area or indented top surfaces of a tooth. These inlays will help restore the strength of your tooth, which in turn will allow you to better bite down and chew. Along with the added restored strength, dental inlays will also improve the overall cosmetic appearance of your mouth.
Onlays are used when more tooth structure has been lost and are made from the same filling as inlays, though the onlays will extend to the cusp of the tooth. For example, a crown is a type of onlay that covers the entire surface of the tooth. Once the onlay has been properly set, you will find you have regained a great deal of your strength and will be able to better chew and bite.

Like most dental procedures, what is covered by your insurance depends on your individual insurance plan. Still, most insurance plans cover inlays and onlays procedures. Keep in mind that your insurance plan may not cover 100% of the costs, so be prepared to pay some of the costs out of pocket. If you do not currently have dental coverage or would like to discuss payment options, please contact our staff to see what
opportunities may be available.
