What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and Onlays may be recommended to restore decayed teeth.

An inlay is form fitted to the grooves in the tooth and molded to resemble the original tooth itself. Onlays, as the name suggests, cover a portion of the tooth. They are similar to inlays except they cover the cusp of the tooth as well. A crown is a full tooth overlay.
