Inlay, Onlays & Overlays

Inlay, Onlays & Overlays

Aesthetic Inlays / Onlays are the common preference now over a traditional amalgam filling. Many people are choosing to replace their fillings with natural-colored inlays and Onlays for aesthetic reasons. An inlay or onlay is a tooth-colored porcelain material that is placed inside or over the surface of a decayed or damaged tooth and is seen as a good alternative to a crown. Placed to cover the top surface of the tooth, they are made from porcelain which resembles the natural color of your teeth to make them more visually attractive.


Happy Smile Clinics offer modern solutions for the reconstruction of badly damaged teeth that are much better than standard composite fillings. Inlays and Onlays are posts and cores that allow for a very tight and precise restoration of teeth’s anatomical shape. All parts of a damaged tooth are restored with the greatest detail and digital precision. Posts and cores are cemented with a special and very strong cement, and then, the natural shape, color, and functions of the tooth are restored.

Although inlays and Onlays resemble composite fillings, the procedure of placing them is completely different.

How does it work?

  1. Our professional specialist removes damaged dental tissue, an old filling, and caries.
  2. A digital impression is made with a special CEREC optical scanner.
    A digital image of the damaged tooth is created on the screen, and next, it is automatically sent to our clinic’s in-house Digital Dental Laboratory.
  3. At the Laboratory, master dental technicians carefully fabricate posts and cores, which are milled from small porcelain blocks and then, colored to match individual needs.
  4. Our specialist places an inlay or onlay received from our digital laboratory in the cavity by using innovative and dedicated cement.

Within a very short period, our specialists can exchange all old fillings and replace them with posts and cores made from beautiful and extremely tight ceramic. Teeth restored this way do not practically differ from other natural teeth and are much more durable. As opposed to traditional fillings, this method allows our specialists for ideal restoration of contact points and reach perfect tightness in subgingival areas.
This procedure is often part of an overall ‘smile makeover’, in which various procedures are performed to enhance the appearance of teeth and provide a huge confidence boost.
