Inlays and onlays are usually made of porcelain or gold and are used when a tooth has a cavity or damage that is too big for a filling but not big enough to need a crown. Whether an onlay or an inlay is used just depends on what part of the tooth is being restored.
At Platinum Dental Care in West Jordan we use only the highest quality materials and most up-to-date procedures.

What is the procedure for getting an inlay or onlay?
Onlays and inlays are custom-made in a lab so two appointments are necessary to complete the procedure.
Appointment 1. The tooth will be prepared, and an impression will be made and sent to a lab where the onlay or inlay will be made to fit your tooth exactly. A temporary restoration will be put on the tooth to protect it.
Appointment 2. The temporary restoration will be removed and the inlay or onlay will be bonded permanently to your tooth.
