FAQs About Inlays & Onlays with Dr. Rustom Appoo
Dental Inlays & Onlays in Edmonton & Surrounding Areas
Dental inlays and onlays offer an alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings. When a tooth is too damaged to support a filling but there is insufficient damage to justify a dental crown, an inlay or onlay might be the answer.
Dental inlays and onlays are both types of tooth restorations, but each covers different proportions of the affected tooth. A dental inlay fills the space in between the cusps, or rounded edges, at the center of the tooth’s surface, while an onlay provides coverage for 1 or more cusps or even the entire surface of the tooth.
