Porcelain inlays and onlays are used if you have dental decay that is too widespread to be properly contained by a regular filling, as may be the case if there is extensive decay or fractures or cracks in the teeth. They can be a good option when the cavity is sizeable and a filling is insufficient, but it’s not large enough to need a crown.

Porcelain inlays provide coverage between the cusps of your teeth and over the grooves, while onlays cover the cusps and grooves. Inlays and onlays are more robust than regular fillings since they are fabricated in a professional dental laboratory.
