Inlays & Onlays
Dental Fillings/ Inlay & Onlays
If you have a tooth that is on the verge of needing a crown, Dr.Miski can offer you options for treatment that are considerably less invasive than getting a crown, by offering inlays and onlays to our patients of all ages when a fragile tooth is damaged, but not badly enough for a full restorative crown. Also called indirect dental fillings, the inlay and onlay are special materials (mainly porcelain) bonded to the tooth to cover a large filling or the damage on the tooth.
The difference between the inlay and onlay is where the material is placed. A dental inlay is applied to the center of the tooth’s surface, while a dental onlay covers the biting surface of the tooth (also known as the cusp). This type of dental restorative can save a tooth from being restored through a more extensive crown process, and our goal is to help you strengthen your natural teeth when possible.
Dr.Miski can provide you with dental fillings “inlay or onlay” in 2 visits . At the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth, make and impression of the tooth, and send the information to our dental laboratory to be made. One the second visit, we will place, fit, and bond the inlay or onlay.
Inlay & Onlay Faqs
How Do I Care For It?
You can carry on your normal oral hygiene routine at home once the inlay or onlay has bonded to the tooth. Please continue to brush two times a day,and to floss at least,once a day.
What If It Is A Visible Tooth?
We make recommendation on materials based on the location and the visibility of the tooth needing an inlay or onlay. Dr.Miski will recommend a material that will blend naturally within your smile. For visible teeth, the dentist will usually recommend porcelain to maintain the appearance of the smile.

Dr. Miski is a fantastic and extremely knowledgeable man, who understands that patients are not only concerned with a quality treatment, but also a qualitative understanding of the procedures and their reasons. Dr. Miski was always patient with his explanations and it is clear that it is very important to him that the patient understands. Aside from this, I was always comfortable with any dental procedures Dr. Miski conducted and trusted his judgement. I would highly recommend anyone to Dr. Miski purely due to the clarity he provides with every treatment.
I’ve been availing of Dr. Miski service for over 3years now and every experience is a joy. Dr. Miski is someone who really makes you feel he cares more about my teeth, more so than I do myself. He takes his time to explain all of your available options and no matter how many questions I ask of him, I never feel I’m burdening him. As someone with extreme sensitivity, never once have I ever felt any discomfort with any injection or procedure and can wholeheartedly say, my teeth have improved immensely since I started using the services of Dr. Miski. Unreservedly, I feel if the dentistry industry had more professionals like Dr. Miski, we all could benefit greatly.
The most beautiful and complete work seeing ever. Thank you Doctor.
