Inlays and Onlays

In Dental Procedures, Services Offered by [email protected]

Here at Lowell Tooth Docs, we pride ourselves on providing you the highest quality of care. This is why we offer services such as inlays and onlays, which are typically made from porcelain or gold. These restorations are stronger than fillings, but less invasive than full coverage dental crowns.  Inlays are placed in the middle of your tooth, while onlays cover one or more cusps (the chewing surfaces) of your tooth. Onlays are sometimes referred to as 3/4 crowns or partial crowns.

Inlays and onlays can last for many years with proper care, and they are a great way to protect your teeth from further damage. These restorations may be indicated because there is a large filling that needs to be replaced or a fractured area of a tooth that doesn’t require a full dental crown.
