Replacing large fillings on back teeth often require a stronger and properly contoured restoration. These are called inlays or onlays depending on their size. Onlays protect teeth similarly as crowns but conserve more natural tooth structure. If much is missing a crown is usually required. Crowns and onlays should provide decades of service. For smaller restorations Dr. Petrini and Dr. Joseph recommend a direct bonded resin "white fillings".
Over 70% of early decay is missed until it does major damage to the tooth.
