How are Onlays & Inlays different than other fillings?
Onlay/Inlay is made of gold, titanium or porcelain rather than plastic resin or silver. While fillings are fit and molded in the tooth right away, Onlay/inlay are are created in a lab after an impression is taken and then bonded with the damaged tooth. Regular fillings typically take appointment while Onlay/Inlay require at least two appointments.
