Inlays are recommended for the lesion that are small and only involves the chewing surface and the surface between the teeth. An inlay is more conservative than a crown because it requires less removal of tooth structure and an inlay can be made from porcelain/ ceramic.Unlike the grey fillings in amalgam, ceramic inlays are visually pleasing and they imitate the natural tooth substance to every extent. It isn’t an exaggeration, as there have been instances when even dentists have mistaken a ceramic inlay for natural tooth substance. If the teeth are with larger cavities, then ceramic inlay or onlay restoration works as a better alternative to composite fillings.
