When restoring a tooth at the back of the mouth that has been chipped or mildly decayed, our dentist may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. The tooth may not have suffered enough damaged to warrant a new dental crown and a white filling may not provide sufficient protection within the cusp.
Dental inlays are used to repair the top surface of the tooth crown whilst dental onlays restore the outer surfaces. Before treatment a local anaesthetic will be given and the chipped or decayed tooth will need to be prepared before the skilled restoration work begins. The material used is porcelain or ceramic which is hard-wearing and can match the natural colour of the original tooth.
