Inlays and onlays are dental restorations used to help repair defective fillings and decay in cases where regular composite fillings may be too small. Harker Chan & Associates offers inlay and onlay services in Southeast (SE) Calgary.
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations, typically made from composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Inlays and onlays can be used to help repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays may be offered as an alternative to silver and composite fillings.
An onlay is sometimes referred to as a partial crown because it covers a large portion of the affected tooth. White it is typically larger than an inlay, they are smaller than a crown.
