Dental inlays and onlays are types of restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are custom-made from dental materials such as porcelain or composite resin and are designed to fit precisely into the prepared cavity of the tooth.

Dental inlays and onlays are considered a more conservative approach compared to dental crowns. They are used when a tooth has moderate damage or decay that cannot be effectively treated with a filling but does not require a full crown.

The process for getting dental inlays and onlays typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, the tooth is prepared by removing any decay or damage. An impression is then taken to create a custom restoration. In the second appointment, the restoration is bonded to the tooth, providing a durable and natural-looking repair.

With proper care and regular dental visits, dental inlays and onlays can last for many years, typically ranging from 10 to 30 years. However, their longevity also depends on factors such as oral hygiene, biting forces, and the specific materials used. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices and visit your dentist regularly to ensure the longevity of your restorations.

I'd like to share a detailed and honest review of my experience. I'm an Australian patient who was in search of an affordable option abroad to improve my smile and bite functionality, as dental costs in Australia tend to be quite high. After extensive research, I came across Meraki Dental Studio in Delhi, India. In March, I made the decision to travel to Delhi and begin my smile makeover journey. My initial visit took place in April, during which Dr. Harleen and her team conducted five dental implants and addressed various other minor dental issues. After a waiting period, I returned to receive crowns for my missing teeth and 18 porcelain veneers. Along the way, there were a few minor challenges, but Dr. Harleen consistently chose not to take shortcuts. Instead, she always found solutions to ensure my satisfaction, even if it meant some(quite a bit) inconvenience on her end. Dr. Harleen is not only an exceptional dentist but also a remarkable and humble person. I've never been as satisfied with a healthcare practitioner before. What truly stood out about Meraki Dental Studio is their unwavering commitment to prioritizing patient satisfaction over financial considerations, which is a rarity in the healthcare industry. I'm incredibly grateful for the care I received at Meraki Dental Studio, and the results of their work are truly remarkable. I've attached some before-and-after photos so you can witness the impressive transformation achieved by Dr. Harleen and her team.

I had visited Dr. Harleen for consultation and after a lot of research and looking into other options. I couldn’t find someone better than her in terms of experience, services, technology, price and most of all her warm and understanding nature. I went ahead with an entire smile makeover (veneers, crown, gingivectomy, zoom whitening, composite filling) and I am more than satisfied. The finish is so natural. She worked so hard to make sure every detail and need was fulfilled. Her entire team is so amazing. They made sure I was looked after well in all my sittings. They were professional yet so fun. The most important part is my smile speaks volume of the work Dr did on me. Its more than amazing (it looks so natural). I highly recommend Dr Harleen for anything dental. She also managed to save two of my teeth from a root canal which was so impressive. For a person who doesn’t like visiting dentist, I wouldn’t mind visiting her again rather than delaying my treatments. Ps. I traveled from Indore to get my treatment done by her because she is that good.

Dental Inlays Delhi And Onlays

Dental Inlays Delhi – There are times when a tooth suffers damage (from decay, for example) that is too extensive to be treated with a simple filling – but not extensive enough, which will require a crown to be placed. In these cases, the best option for restoring the tooth may be an inlay or onlay – Dental Inlays Delhi.

The primary distinction between an onlay and an inlay is that an onlay will cover a cusp of the tooth, whereas an inlay only fills the area between the cusps. The cavity is still drilled from the tooth, and an onlay is fabricated to the exact size and shape of the space. Conversely, a crown will cover the entire biting surface of the tooth, as well as the tooth structure above the gum line – Dental Inlays Delhi.

Both inlays and onlays are an “indirect” filling, which means that they are fabricated outside the mouth at a dental lab, and then bonded to the tooth by our dentists. This is in contrast to a “direct” filling, which is applied directly to the cavity by our dentist in one office visit.

Dental Inlays

Technological advancements make it possible for you to maintain an amazing smile even if you have cavities. Many dentists still usel amalgam (silver) fillings but nowadays there are dental inlays available to fill your cavities with material that matches your tooth color. If you are conscious about your existing metal fillings, you may want to consider replacing them with natural looking dental inlays. Dental inlays allow our dentists at Meraki Dental Studio to offer you virtually invisible dental restorations.

What Dental Inlays Do

Dental inlays repair the chewing surface of your tooth. Our dentists at Meraki Dental Studio may use dental inlays to repair teeth that have other restoration options such as a dental filling. You can have your inlays created of tooth colored porcelain or composite resin. You can also choose to have your inlays made from gold. Most inlays are more durable than the composite or amalgam fillings. They are also less expensive than a dental crown.

Creating Your Dental Inlay

A dental lab creates your dental inlay using the exact specifications of the tooth that needs restoration. The decayed portion of the tooth or teeth receiving the dental inlays is first cleaned and prepared.  Our dentists create an impression of your tooth/teeth and send it to the dental lab. The porcelain which the dental lab uses to create your inlays will match the shade of your teeth. This allows your dental restoration to blend in perfectly.

Our dentists will give you a temporary restoration while your permanent inlays are created. The temporary restoration protects your teeth and allows you to chew safely and comfortably. Once your inlays arrive, our dentists will ensure that they fit perfectly and then secure them in place.

Caring for your Inlays

You need to take care for your dental inlays the same way you care for your natural teeth – maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing every day. Regular dental visits to Meraki Dental Studio allow us to detect any dental problems while they are still in the early stages.

Dental Onlays and Dental Inlay India

Dental Inlay India are direct fillings however, Dental onlays are indirect fillings. These onlays offer patients a stronger, well-fitting and longer lasting repair for tooth decay or other structural damage.

While a dental filling is molded during a single dental visit, an onlay is created in a dental lab before it is fitted and then bonded to a damaged tooth. A dental restoration that requires material to be bonded within the tooth’s center is considered an inlay whereas, restorations involving the entire biting surface or one or more points (cusps) of a tooth are onlays.

The Dental Onlay Procedure

Your onlays may be made from various materials including: porcelain, gold and resin. The difference between these three materials is their appearance. It generally takes two visits to complete an onlay.

During your first visit, your teeth will be prepared for your dental onlays. Molded impressions of the teeth being restored are taken and sent to the laboratory where your onlays will be created. Our dentists may create you a temporary dental onlay during this visit to protect your teeth until your permanent onlays are created and placed.

During your second visit, our dentists remove the temporary onlays and place your permanent dental onlays. Our dentists will check your bite and make sure that your dental onlays are smooth and tight. Then our dentists will bond the dental onlays onto your teeth and polish the margins.


The best material to use for your dental onlays depends on where the onlays are located. For example, if you are placing an onlay on your back molar you can use gold. Resin materials are perfect for people who have a misaligned bite or grind their teeth and our dentists use porcelain onlays in the smile line areas. You should consult the experienced dentists at Meraki Dental Studio to find the right material based on your teeth.

Other Benefits of Onlays

  • Easy Cleaning: Dental onlays are tailored to fit perfectly with minimal preparation. This makes cleaning a dental onlay easier than cleaning a crown.
  • Color: A dental onlay is less likely to discolor than a tooth-colored resin filling.
  • True Size: A composite filling may shrink while it cures, prefabricated gold or porcelain onlays will not.
  • Natural Tooth Preservation: Dental onlays allow our dentists to preserve the healthy tooth structure while restoring the damaged or decayed areas, this allows for functional longevity.
  • Stability: Dental onlays are strong and stable. Their superior fit and resilient material make onlays a great choice, sometimes even strengthening a damaged tooth. This strength occurs because a dental onlay does not require our dentists to totally reshape the tooth that is being restored.

The Dental Filling Vs Dental Inlays Delhi

In theory, these two can often be used interchangeably, but inlays are typically reserved for much larger cavities. They both involve removing the existing cavity with a drill and filling that empty space, but how that space is filled is where they primarily differ.

With a filling, an amalgam or composite material is used to fill the space, and it’s a much quicker process, involving only a single visit.

With an inlay, the space is filled with a single, solid piece that is usually fabricated in a dental lab, although they can sometimes be made in-office, and they are typically made out of a material like gold or ceramic. The inlay must be made precisely to the shape and size of the empty space, otherwise food and bacteria will enter the space, resulting in further decay.

The upside to an inlay is that they do not contract to the same degree as a filling after being placed, so there is less chance of the restoration failing for that reason, or creating a gap between the filling and the surrounding tooth structure. Inlays also create a tougher and theoretically more durable surface for use when chewing, and as such, an inlay should be more reliable long term, although the data on that is mixed and inconclusive.

Onlays Vs Dental Crowns

Both onlays and crowns are for your more major single-tooth restorations, reserved for larger areas of decay where a filling or inlay won’t work due to the amount of tooth structure that must be removed.

An onlay is a less aggressive restoration than a crown, as less tooth structure needs to be removed in order to place the onlay. Also, the cost of an onlay is slightly cheaper than a crown.

As such, an onlay is actually the preferred restoration when possible. However, the caveat here is that an onlay is more difficult to do correctly and more reliant on the skill of the dentist. Meraki Dental Studio is an award winning practice and you will always find the best results.
