NEED INLAYS & ONLAYS?
Our Team of dental professionals is here to help you with your
inlays & onlays.
Dental inlays and onlays are pieces of porcelain or similar material that are used when old fillings need to be removed or replaced. An inlay is very similar to an actual filling in that it fits on the inside of the tooth where the old filling used to rest.
An inlay fits inside the cusp tips of the tooth and helps to protect the drilled out portion of the tooth. These can be either permanent or temporary depending on the treatment method your dentist chooses. An onlay fits over the cusps of treated teeth and fits on the top of the tooth to protect the area.
Those patients that need dental inlays and onlays are those that have old fillings that may have begun to crack or chip, separate from the tooth, or that have fillings that have new cavities beneath them. Your dentist will remove the old filling and fit a new inlay or only over the area to protect it.
In some cases, these are permanent, but in cases where more dental work is needed, they may be a temporary fix until the tooth can be properly repaired.
The costs of your inlays & onlays treatments may usually be covered by your dental insurance plan or extended dental coverage. If you are looking for more information about a particular service and the costs associated, contact one of our representatives for help. Our treatment coordinators can help you come up with an affordable way for you to pay for the oral health services you need.

Don’t worry if you have reached the maximum cap with your insurance provider for the year or do not otherwise have coverage to pay for your dental treatment, there are other options available.
We offer a convenient list of options for making payment arrangements, and we work hard to make many third-party lenders and other types of credit programs available for our patients.
My experience at Houston Cosmetic Dentistry was outstanding. I needed a dentist in the area for a teeth cleaning and regular checkups. Dr. Evan and his staff are friendly and I liked the positive atmosphere.-Eric Banks
