Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are also known as partial crowns, and are used to restore shape, prevent any further damage, and strengthen the tooth. For residents needing an inlay or onlay in Raleigh, the best destination to head to is Village Dental and the talented dentists who offer an exceptional experience.

An inlay is used when it is possible to lay on top of the tooth because there is no damage to the cusps, whereas an onlay is used when there is more damage to the tooth. The decayed area of the tooth is removed and the restoration is made from porcelain, gold or a composite resin. This process takes around 2-3 weeks, so we will outfit you with a temporary inlay or onlay. Once the permanent restoration is applied, the fit and feel will be natural and no one will be able to tell you’ve had work done!
