What is the difference between an Inlay and an Onlay?
Are Inlays and Onlays tooth coloured?
How do Inlays and Onlays Differ from White Fillings?
Whilst white fillings are also a way of restoring cavities, they are more suited to more minor restorations. An inlay/onlay is better suited to more complicated cases which require precision filling. They are made in a dental laboratory, and the accuracy of their design reduces the likelihood of wear and shrinkage that can be associated with large white fillings.
