Is your tooth suffering from cavities and tooth decay? Dental inlays and onlays from Dentistry of Orlando might resolve the problem. You’re probably more familiar with the common solutions like fillings or crowns. Fillings are used to fill in small cavities while crowns are made for deeper or larger fractures. But what if fillings are too small while crowns are too big for your dental problem?
Our dental inlays and onlays present just the right solution for tooth decays that neither fit fillings nor crowns. It’s a more conservative approach to tooth restoration than full crowns. This procedure is used to repair rear teeth that have mild to moderate tooth decay, or for cracked teeth where the damage does not warrant a dental crown.

At Dentistry of Orlando, we make sure you get the restorative dental solution that suits your needs. We use porcelain, composite resin, and sometimes gold to create inlays and onlays. Inlays refer to those procedures where the bonded material is limited to the center of the tooth, while onlays refers to those procedures where the bonded material extends further to one or more cusps of the tooth. Patients who go for this procedure enjoy these benefits:
You can choose natural tooth color for Inlays and onlays so they are visually invisible compared to metal fillings.
Dental Inlays and onlays will not expand or contract based on temperature like metal fillings.
With proper care, Inlays and onlays can last up to thirty years, longer than any other type of filling.
It requires minimal removal of a tooth’s surface to preserve the healthy tooth structure while restoring damaged areas.
Tooth onlays and inlays are durable and long-lasting. With proper care and hygiene, they can last anywhere between 5-30 years. We recommend these dental habits to properly care for your teeth after inlays/onlays are placed:
