Inlays and Onlays in Austin, TX
Durable And Strong Restorations.
Great Teeth, Better Life.
Here at Austin Dental, inlays and onlays are often recommended by our dentists when more than 50% of your tooth’s biting surface (the part you use when you chew) has been damaged by decay or injury.
Compared to other restorations, inlays and onlays actually strengthen your remaining tooth structure, protecting it against further cracks and chips. In addition, inlays and onlays help you retain the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure.
If you’ve been told you need a filling or are wondering if your fillings are still in good shape, let’s talk. Our dentists can explain inlays, onlays, and other restorative dental treatments, helping you find the right choice for your dental health.

Inlays & Onlays: What To Expect
Just like traditional fillings, inlays and onlays can usually be completed in a single trip to the dentist. Your dentist will begin by preparing the surface of your tooth. We’ll also make a model of your tooth using CEREC technology — a 100% digital system with no goopy impressions! That “blueprint” will be used to fabricate the final restoration. It’s all completed in just one visit and you won’t need to wear a temporary crown!
What are inlays made from?
Inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of materials.
Gold has traditionally been the most commonly used material for inlays because of its durability. However, a more modern option for inlays is porcelain or resin. These materials are also very strong and have a natural tooth-colored appearance.
Your dentist will talk to you about which material is the best choice for your mouth and smile.
