Inlays and Onlays


Inlays and onlays are designed to restore the appearance and function of damaged or decayed teeth when a full dental crown would be considered excessive.

Inlays and onlays are unique in that they are custom-fitted using impressions of the patient’s teeth. Patients who receive an inlay or onlay will be required to make two visits to our clinic. The first visit involves having impressions of their teeth taken, and the second visit consists of permanently applying the dental inlay or onlay.


A dental inlay consists of applying filling material to the interior of a tooth in order to cover some or all of the area within the cusps, or points, of the tooth. Inlays are usually performed when a tooth is damaged in such a way that it cannot be repaired with a regular filling, but not so damaged that it requires a full dental crown. Because inlays are custom-fit, they typically leave teeth stronger and more durable than teeth that have been treated with classic fillings.


Onlays are slightly more extensive than inlays, in that the filling material covers at least one of the cusps or points of the tooth. In some cases, an onlay might cover the entire chewing surface of the tooth. Onlays are a great treatment option when a tooth requires restoration, but a full dental crown is unnecessary.

If you require a filling and you would like to learn more about inlays and onlays, please call us at (509) 737-1800 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Front end staff helpful in setting an appointment for me even with a few reschedules on my part. They also helped me to budget, prioritize, and make my treatment plan attainable financially. Many of my 20 yr old fillings had reached the end of their life so there is plenty of work to be done. The hygienist and Dr. Morgan both took time to explain the x-rays and treatment plan so that I understood the state of my dental health. Top notch staff and facility."

"Been going about 13 yrs. They're very empathetic to my fear of dentistry procedures, stemming from childhood. The staff, from the front desk, to dental assistants, nurses, and Dr Morgan are all a pleasure to do business with. My son, has been going there about 4 years, currently age 5, and he has never left afraid. Grandridge truly does a fabulous job making us both feel as comfortable as possible. Thank you, and well done Grandridge Dental! We love you and your staff!"
