Inlays and Onlays

There are cases when damage to a tooth is too complex or extensive to be treated with a simple filling, yet the full-coverage of a dental crown is not necessary. In these cases, the best option for restoring the tooth may be an inlay or onlay.

Also known as indirect fillings because they are custom-made outside of the mouth, Inlays and Onlays are treatments used to repair mild to moderate tooth damage. Here at Rye Dental Associates, we offer quality and affordable restorations including inlays and onlays for our patients in Rye, New York.


A dental inlay involves the application of filling material to the center of a tooth’s chewing surface. An inlay will not cover any of the tooth’s elevated features (cusps), only the area inside these points. After a tooth is repaired using an inlay procedure, the appearance will be natural, and the function will be back to normal.


An onlay is sometimes also referred to as a partial crown. Onlays are a great solution to conservatively restore natural teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay. Onlays are identical to inlays except one or more of the tooth’s cusps (points) will be included as part of the restoration.

Restore and strengthen your teeth through onlays and inlays in Rye, New York. Call us at (914) 967-1242 to book your appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Competent, capable care in a relaxed (and relaxing) environment. The sole focus of the practice is good dental health - rather than “selling” as I’ve experienced elsewhere. Great respect is afforded to patient preferences. I’ve recommended this practice to family and friends and will continue to do so as they’re A1 in my book."

Bill W.

"Have always been a bit of a baby when it comes to dentists but after coming here I am no longer worried. Everything from beginning to end was excellent and I was sent home pain free. Will definitely be coming back for my routine checkups :)"


"Lois is absolutely wonderful! My fiancé also got his teeth cleaned & he hates getting his teeth cleaned and he was so happy with Lois! Lois is gentle and makes the teeth cleaning process painless and comfortable! The office staff is also very friendly!"
