Composite Inlays and Onlays
Inlays are used when the decay is within the indented top surface (cusp) of a tooth, and an onlay is used when the cavity involves one or more cusps. If the cavity or tooth damage is more severe, it may be necessary to have a crown placed.
Composite inlays and onlays are made of a combination of plastic and zirconia/silica, which is bonded to the tooth. They are tooth-colored in appearance and actually strengthen the structure of the tooth by up to seventy-five percent; and because of the composite materials from which they are made, they can last up to thirty years.
