Inlays and Onlays

When a tooth has suffered damage from decay or traumatic injury, there may not be enough tooth structure remaining to support a filling. In this case, a pre-fabricated restoration called an inlay or onlay may be used to repair the tooth.

Inlays and onlays are typically made from porcelain, metal or composite. An inlay sits within the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay can also cover the cusps, enabling a dentist to restore the full chewing surface of a severely damaged tooth.

The tooth needs to be prepared before the restoration can begin. Decayed tissue is removed before an impression is taken and sent to a dental lab. You will receive a temporary filling until your fitting appointment.

You can trust our experienced and compassionate dental team to restore your smile. Call Elm House on 020 8520 7117 if you have a tooth that needs repair.

What our patients say about us...

Very pleased with Elm Dental Surgery! For over 10 years - excellent care. Professional and Friendly


I've been scared of the dentist for a very long time, but toothache forced me to make an appointment. A friend recommended Elm House to me and I'm so glad she did. The dentist I saw today was so patient and kind, explaining everything perfectly. Actually all the staff were great, including the receptionists. I will definitely go back and I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thank you Elm House, my faith has been restored.
