Inlays & Onlays are used to treat minor to advanced cases of tooth decay. Inlays & Onlays can also address damaged teeth and cosmetic blemishes. Offered as a more conservative alternative to a dental crown, inlays, and onlays are highly durable and can be designed to blend with your natural teeth for a beautiful result.

Our team of restorative dentists is committed to the long-term success and health of your natural smile. Your dental inlay or onlay can be custom created to match seamlessly with your natural smile.
What To Expect with Inlays & Onlays
Our experienced team will perform a full dental exam to determine whether a dental onlay or dental inlay is right for you. Depending on the specific case, we can use CEREC dental technology to create a custom fit dental inlay or dental onlay in a single visit.
The process is similar to getting a dental crown. First, your Florida dentist will thoroughly clean the affected area. All tooth decay and bacteria will be removed. He will then scan your tooth to create a 3D image of the area. This scan will be used to craft the restoration. The material used is either composite resin or ceramic. Once your restoration is fabricated, we will carefully cement it into place during your visit.
An inlay can be used to address moderate tooth decay on the surface of the teeth. Inlays are often used to address tooth decay that is too advanced for a dental filling, but not enough for a dental crown. The goal is to preserve as much as the natural tooth as possible. Inlays can be custom designed to match with your existing teeth for a natural looking result.
Onlays are often referred to as a partial crown. Onlays can address damage in the cusps of the tooth. Onlays are considered a less expensive alternative to a dental crown. Again, your options will depend on the severity of your tooth decay.
