Inlays or Onlays are partial crowns or custom made filling made in the laboratory. They are more conservative way to restore your teeth without destroying the sound tooth structure. Your dentist may indicate an Inlay Or Onlay depending on how much tooth has been affected by the tooth decay /tooth fracture.

This procedure is done in 2 visits- during the first visit, Dentist removes any old filling/decay from the tooth, he then makes an impression of the tooth to send to the dental lab. he then temporizes your tooth with a temporary filling. The lab takes about 10-14 business day to fabricate your inlay/onlay.

On the 2nd visit, the dentist cements in your final restoration ( inlay/onlay) with the tooth colored cement. he then polishes the tooth to removed any excess cement and check your bite.
