Inlays and Onlays are a type of treatment that restores just a piece of a tooth for restoration. The surface of a tooth may have been damaged due to decay or trauma, but not enough so to need a full crown (where the entire surface of the tooth needs to be restored). When only part of the surface is affected, a solid piece of material can then fit the specific size of the cavity to restore the tooth. The difference between inlays and onlays depend on how much surface of the tooth needs to be restored.
