Dentistry and Oral Surgery

Inlays and onlays

In case there are some missing parts on the surface of the tooth/ there is a hole in it which cannot be restored aesthetically by using dental fillings, then we apply inlays/onlays.

What is inlay and onlay?


Inlays are special dental fillings which are suitable for the restoration of the biting surface of molars.


Onlays are partial crowns which are necessary when not only the biting surface of the tooth is damaged, but also the lateral parts and edges of it.

How are inlays and onlays made?

In case of inlays, after the initial consultation, a hole is prepared in the tooth by the dentist who takes an impression and sends it to theinlay-onlay-dental-fillings-2technical laboratory.

In case of onlays, the procedure differs in that the tooth is filed down before taking the impression.

At our in-house laboratory at Implantcenter Budapest, we use the most modern materials to make inlays and onlays for our patients. Technicians choose the matching coloured material to provide the most aesthetic results. The procedure of making inlays/onlays in the laboratory usually takes 3-5 working days.

Advantages of inlays/onlays

  • non-allergic
  • stable, long-lasting and abrasion-resistant solution
  • colour and shape perfectly matches own teeth
  • no colour change in the long-run, only with own teeth material parallelly
  • even seriously damaged teeth can be saved using onlays

Dr. Attila Kaman and the ImplantCenter came highly recommended by my cousin. Dr Kaman, Dr Lantos and the whole staff completely lived up to, and surpassed my expectations. I had extensive work done and I must say that Dr Kaman and Dr Lantos were top notch - they were not only excellent practioners but were very kind and caring. They continually insured I was comfortable and not in pain. I cannot recommend the ImplantCenter enough!!!
