An Inlay is a restoration which has been fabricated out of the mouth usually from gold or porcelain and then cemented into the prepared cavity of the tooth. An Onlay is essentially an inlay that also covers one or more cusps of the tooth. They can be a great alternative to a crown because they conserve healthy tooth structure and have a higher degree of strength as compared to a regular filling restoration.
