Inlays and Onlays
If you have damaged or decayed teeth, dental inlays or onlays may be ideal for you.
Dentists recommend porcelain restorations when a filling cannot sufficiently restore a tooth, but a crown would be excessive.
Dr. John P. Goodman provides custom inlays and onlays in Kansas City, MO, designed to achieve a precise fit and natural-looking aesthetics.
What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Also referred to as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, long-lasting reparative solution to tooth decay or similar structural damage.
They are often used in place of traditional dental fillings. Whereas fillings are molded into place during a visit to our Kansas City dentist, inlays and onlays are fabricated before being fitted and bonded. In some cases, they are a more conservative alternative to full-coverage dental crowns.
Benefits of Inlays and Onlays
From a Trusted Kansas City Dentist
Inlays and onlays require minimal removal of the natural tooth since they bond directly to it.
As a result of the materials used, inlays and onlays may last over ten years with proper care.
Tooth-colored inlays and onlays match the appearance of surrounding teeth and maintain their color.

What’s the Difference
Between Direct and Indirect Restorations?
Direct restorations can be fabricated and complete inside the mouth without the need to send anything to a dental laboratory. The most common direct restoration used are dental fillings made from silver amalgam or composite resin.
Indirect restorations must be fabricated outside the mouth before being placed on the affected tooth. Inlays and onlays fall into this category, as to dental crowns and bridges.
How Much Do Inlays and Onlays Cost?
The cost of dental inlays and onlays depends on a variety of factors, including the teeth being worked on, the type of material used, and the scope of the restoration at large. Fortunately, inlays and onlays are covered by many insurance providers. Our practice in Kansas City, MO, accepts most insurance and offers CareCredit® financing to help patients afford treatment.
