Inlays, Onlays and Fillings are restorations that are made for teeth that have a mild to moderate amount of decay. They can be made of composite resin material, porcelain, or gold by a dental laboratory. Once completed, they will be bonded to the tooth.
Treatment involves isolating the tooth and removing any old fillings or damaged tooth structure under local anesthesia.
In treating dental decay, inlays / onlays and fillings help to eliminate tooth sensitivity and eventual tooth loss.
