Inlays and Onlays

These are dental restorations that aim to give back shape and strength to the tooth. An inlay is prepared into a cavity that is created. An onlay covers the pointed part of the tooth which most use for biting.

We use custom-made inlays and onlays to restore the tooth's strength and structure. Whether you need a partial inlay/onlays or full restoration, we will be able to guide you.
