Optimize Your Smile With Inlays & Onlays
At Bloor Dental Clinic in Toronto, we utilize inlays and onlays – restorations that are custom-made with composite or porcelain materials – to repair teeth that have been significantly damaged by cavities, fractures, or other types of oral damage. These restorations are then bonded directly to the damaged tooth, providing a clean and attractive appearance.

What's the difference between an inlay and an onlay?
Inlays are restorations that fit between the cusps, or points, of a tooth. Onlays restore larger sections of the damaged tooth – often extending over one or more cusps.
How are inlays and onlays placed?
The process begins with our dentist preparing the affected tooth by removing any damaged areas and shaping it to create an optimal fit for the restoration. An impression is then taken to make a mold from which the custom-made inlay or onlay will be created. Once finished, the restoration is bonded to the affected tooth with a strong dental adhesive.
What are the benefits of inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays provide a strong and durable restoration for teeth damaged by cavities. They can be made to match your natural tooth colour and are highly resistant to staining. In addition, they are more conservative than dental crowns as less of the original tooth structure needs to be removed in order to fit them.
Who is a candidate for inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays are suitable for those with teeth damaged by cavities or fractures. They can also be used to replace old, broken-down fillings. If you have extensive damage or decay, our dentist may recommend a dental crown instead of an inlay or onlay.
