In Affinity dental group, Dr. Mikhak, a prominent Woodland Hills dentist, offer inlays and onlys to restore fractured tooth structures that are too large to be restored with regular composite fillings. When a tooth is planned to be restored with a restoration, but the decay or fracture is well beyond the point that a direct restoration, such as composite, would compromise the structural integrity of the restored tooth or not strong enough for biting, in such situations, an indirect gold or porcelain inlay restoration may be indicated. Inlays and onlay can also be fabricated from Zirconia.

 

When decay or fracture incorporate areas of a tooth that make amalgam or composite restorations inadequate, such as cuspal fracture or remaining tooth structure that undermines perimeter walls of a tooth, an onlay might be indicated.

 

Similar to an inlay, an onlay is an indirect restoration which incorporates a cusp or cusps by covering or onlaying the missing cusps. All of the benefits of an inlay are present in the onlay restoration. The onlay allows for conservation of tooth structure when the only alternative is to totally eliminate cusps and perimeter walls for restoration with a crown.

 

Just as inlays, onlays are fabricated outside of the mouth and are typically made out of gold or porcelain. Gold restorations have been around for many years and have an excellent track record.
