Dental Inlays and Onlays in North Austin

example of inlay and onlayWith so many options for repairing damaged teeth, it can be difficult to know what treatment is best. At Brian F. Scaff DDS, the team takes pride in offering patients honest consultations to determine the best course of care for their specific needs and goals.

Inlays and Onlays are often considered for individuals when teeth aren’t quite damaged enough to warrant a crown.

What Are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are made from tooth-colored porcelain, composite resin, or even gold. Inlays are custom-fitted to repair damage in the ridges of the teeth; onlays, also custom-fitted, are used to repair decay and damage that occurs on more than one point of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays look very natural, so no one even knows they’re not real teeth! They are also strong and durable—necessary qualities for those busy back molars.
