Dental inlays and onlays are made of
Dental inlays are placed on the top surfaces of teeth.
They are used to repair the larger chewing surfaces of the back teeth and larger cavities for which regular fillings would not be strong enough.
Dental onlays can treat an even larger area of the tooth affected by damage. Dental is sometimes called partial crowns because they cover a large portion of the tooth.
They require less of the natural tooth material to be removed, and so function as a less invasive alternative to dental crowns.
