Inlays & Onlays An Overview
Inlays and Onlays are commonly referred to as partial dental crowns. Both inlays and onlays are used to address severe damage or decay to the natural teeth.
Dr. Dennis Garpetti and Dr. Brock Hyder offer comprehensive solutions to repair damage and decay teeth. We may recommend inlays and onlays to address large surfaces that are riddled with damage or decay.
Using advanced CEREC technology, we can fabricate custom-designed inlays and onlays in just one visit to our Boise dentist office. We use digital impressions and imagery to design inlays and onlays tailored to your oral health and cosmetic needs. Inlays and onlays are created using a stain and decay resistant material that can last many years with proper care and maintenance.
Inlay VS. Onlay
Inlay: An inlay is a natural looking solution that is similar to a dental filling. An inlay is used to address the surface of a damaged or decayed tooth and helps prevent further damage.
Onlay: Sometimes referred to as a partial dental crown, an onlay is used to treat larger areas of damaged or decay teeth. An only is designed to fit over one or more cusps of the tooth.
