Dr. Barbara Young may recommend dental inlays and onlays as a solution if you have experienced extensive tooth decay that cannot support a traditional filling. Dental inlays and onlays are placed in two appointments. The first removes the decay or old filling from the affected tooth, and an impression is created of the tooth. The impression is used to create the inlay or onlay that will be permanently mounted to restore your tooth and smile.
