What are inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are indirect fillings. Indirect fillings refer to fillings that aren’t made in a lab. Rather, they are made in a dental lab and then fitted over the tooth.
Inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of materials, such as composite resin, porcelain, and gold. Both inlays and onlays are custom-made to fit the exact space being restored.
