Inlays and Onlays
Onlays and inlays are restorations made in a dental lab and are used to correct a tooth structure that is too large to be restored with simple fillings. The process making inlays is similar to making a crown. Inlays are made using porcelain, composite resins or gold. Composite and porcelain inlays act as cosmetic replacements for fillings as they are stronger and more stable.
Inlays and onlays can replace fillings for the back teeth and are sometimes preferred over simple fillings. They also offer a more conservative treatment method for those who do not wish to have crowns installed.
The cost of inlays and onlays are similar to that of crowns. As far as fillings are concerned, inlays and onlays end up costing less than them in the long run as they are more durable solutions than fillings.
