What are ceramic inlays and onlays?

When dental damage calls for more than a filling but less than a crown, inlays and onlays may be used. An inlay is used in the center of the tooth surface, between the rounded cusps. An onlay covers at least one cusp, and often the entire chewing surface of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays can be made from three different materials: gold, composite resin, and ceramic. Of the three, ceramic provides the most natural appearance. It is durable, long lasting and easy to clean, and closely mirrors both the color and translucence of your natural teeth.
