Inlay & OnlayAn Overview
Dental inlays and onlays are similar to a dental filling or tooth crown, used to restore teeth that are worn or affected by decay or other damage. Inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of durable materials such as resin, porcelain and/or gold. Dr. Upadya also offers the option of same day porcelain restorations with E4D technology.
Inlay vs. Onlay
The primary difference is the amount of tooth covered by the restoration:
- An inlay is basically a filling, placed within the cusps of the tooth.
- An onlay, also called a partial crown, provides more coverage.

Inlay & Onlay What to Expect
Traditionally, the process for inlays and onlays requires two visits. In our East Hanover, NJ dentist office, most of these restorations can be designed, fabricated and placed in a single visit. A comprehensive exam will determine which treatment option is suitable for your dental concern.
Dr. Upadya will take a digital impression of your tooth and then use sophisticated computer software to design the inlay or onlay. The restoration is then made in our in-office laboratory using high quality ceramic materials. Once the milling is complete, Dr. Upadya will try on the restoration and bond it to the tooth.
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your inlay or onlay to last for many years. Porcelain restorations are highly durable and stain resistant.
