Inlay and onlay restorations represent cutting-edge dental techniques designed to repair and restore damaged or decayed teeth. Often considered as more conservative alternatives to crowns, these indirect fillings maintain as much healthy tooth as possible, offering a custom-made solution that seamlessly blends with your natural teeth.
Inlays and onlays are often used when damage or decay is too extensive for a traditional filling but not severe enough to require a full crown. This middle-ground solution makes them a popular choice among dentists and patients alike.
Inlays are custom-made fillings fabricated in a dental laboratory. They are typically used when the damage to a tooth is confined to the biting surface or between the cusps - the rounded edges of a tooth's chewing surface. Inlays are directly bonded to the tooth, thereby creating a tight seal that prevents further decay and strengthens the overall tooth structure.
Inlays are constructed from tooth-colored materials like porcelain or composite resin, allowing for an aesthetically pleasing restoration that is virtually undetectable.
Onlays, sometimes referred to as "partial crowns," offer a broader coverage than inlays. They are used when the damage extends beyond the cusps of the tooth. Like inlays, onlays are fabricated in a dental lab and then bonded to the damaged tooth.
Onlays, while providing extensive coverage, are less invasive than crowns, preserving more of the natural tooth structure. They are equally aesthetically pleasing as inlays, as they are made from the same tooth-colored materials.
Inlay and onlay restorations, like many dental procedures, do require a financial investment. The cost can vary depending on a range of factors, including the extent of the tooth damage, the material used for the restoration (such as porcelain or composite resin), and the dentist's level of expertise.
Typically, inlays and onlays are more expensive than regular fillings, but less expensive than dental crowns. This is due to the fact that they are custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit your tooth precisely, and the procedure involves a high degree of technical skill.
This treatment, which costs $1,000 per tooth in the United States, can be considered relatively expensive. But in Turkey, you can get it done for an average of 250-300 dollars! There are many factors that affect the price. Material quality, doctor's experience etc.

Dental onlays are highly durable restorations, designed to last many years under normal conditions. However, like any dental restoration, they are not entirely immune to damage. Eating hard or sticky foods, grinding your teeth, or experiencing a physical trauma can potentially damage your onlay.
If an onlay becomes damaged, whether it can be repaired depends on the extent and nature of the damage.
