Inlays and Onlay (Indirect tooth filling)

Inlays and Onlays are an alternative to direct filling built directly in the month. They are more durable compared to traditional direct filling. Inlays and Onlays are fabricated outside the month, then fitted by a dentist. Inlays are when the indirect tooth filling fits within the little points of the back tooth. When the filling covers on or all the points of the back tooth it's considered to be an Onlay

Inlays and Onlays are done when the damage to the tooth is extensive and direct filling would cause more damage to the structure of the tooth or cause biting problems.

Inlays can give the tooth aesthetic appearance making the restored tooth fit it with others in an indistinguishable manner. Considering that inlays are fabricated in the laboratory they give the dentist room to achieve good contact points.
