Patients who have suffered from tooth decay or trauma to their teeth could be ideal candidates for an inlay or onlay to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smile. Inlays and onlays can create a stronger tooth structure with minimal removal of the natural tooth material. Sutton Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry of NYC offers beautiful inlays and onlays with CEREC® one-visit dentistry. This means your consultation for either inlays or onlays and your actual procedure can be performed painlessly with one appointment at our elegant dental center in Manhattan.


Most adults have had fillings for cavities or tooth damage, which cure filling materials like resin or amalgam inside the tooth. Inlays and onlays can also replace lost tooth material and strengthen the tooth, but these restorations are made in our on-site dental lab. They fit into the top or over side of the tooth, protecting it from damage and improving the overall appearance.

An inlay is performed when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth. Additionally, a porcelain inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An inlay is used when the damage is a little less extensive. We can also replace your old metal fillings with small white, porcelain inlays to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

A porcelain onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited for more extensive areas of coverage. Onlays are used when there is more extensive damage to the tooth or to replace large or multiple metal fillings.

Inlays and onlays are two types of tooth restoration treatments offered by the cosmetic dentist, Dr. Mojgan Fajiram. These may be suggested to you once a dental x-ray is taken and an examination for tooth decay or damage is performed. If the diagnostic image reveals that you have a cavity or damaged tooth, you may be an ideal candidate for a porcelain inlay or onlay.


In the past, dentists were limited to using silver and gold for fillings, inlays and onlays. With the advancements in dental materials and technology, tooth-colored porcelain is now used to give a restored tooth a more natural look, which most of our NYC dental patients prefer. Not only are porcelain inlays and onlays discreet and practically invisible, but they offer many benefits:

  • Beautiful aesthetic appearance
  • Better resistance to the forces exerted during chewing and biting
  • Better protection against recurring decay
  • A more precise and longer lasting fit
  • Inlays and onlays are strong, long-lasting porcelain fillings/restorations

While many dentists require two appointments for inlays and onlays, at Sutton Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, we can perform the procedure in one visit to our Sutton Place office on the edge of the UES in Manhattan. We utilize CEREC® technology and our on-site dental lab to create your customized inlay or onlay the same day as your exam. We use 3D imaging to create the model of your tooth – you will never have to endure uncomfortable dental molds at our world-class dental center. Our patients, many who are celebrities, love our one-visit options, including our same day inlays and onlays.
