Inlays and onlays are thebest alternative to regular fillings when it comes to treating larger areas of trauma or decay in teeth. Made of natural-looking porcelain or ceramic materials, inlays and onlays are digitally customized and designed by our staff to fit into a tooth’s cavity. To compare and explain it simply, inlays or onlays are determined by the size and location of the tooth’s area needing treatment. Onlays lay on top of the tooth and cover a damaged cusp, while inlays lay within the tooth’s structure. Ceramic inlays and onlays are made of a stronger material than regular fillings and are designed and bonded to the original and healthy part of the tooth. Best of all, using our advanced CEREC Technology, Grove Dental will design and place your customized restoration in one appointment instead of sending the work out to an offsite lab!
