You can sometimes have inlays or onlays instead of conventional fillings to repair damaged teeth. Fillings are soft to begin with and are moulded in the tooth which has been shaped to take and hold the filling and then set hard. Inlays and onlays are made outside the mouth, usually in a dental laboratory on a model of your teeth, and then bonded to the tooth in the surgery.
An inlay sits in a hole in the tooth. An onlay sits on the tooth and builds up its shape. Inlays and onlays can be made in tooth-coloured porcelain, gold or a white filling material called composite. Different materials are suitable for different parts of the mouth and different parts of the mouth and different parts of the teeth.
