More conservative than a crown, inlays and onlays are two methods of restoring normal tooth structure after decay or other damage.
Inlays and onlays are known as indirect fillings because unlike a standard filling which are normally done in a single visit, inlays and onlays are made in a laboratory and are bonded to the surface of the tooth during your second visit to PVB Dental.
Did you know?..
Unlike standard fillings, inlays and onlays do not weaken the tooth structure, but actually strengthen it! After the procedure, the tooth can bear up to 50 to 75% more chewing force.
