When you need to repair teeth with mild to moderate decay or that are cracked and fractured, your dentist may use inlays and onlays, which is often done when the damage is not sufficient enough for a crown.
Fillings are needed to fill in or rebuild when there is a small amount of decay in a tooth. But when the decay or damage becomes larger, it is better to use inlays or onlays while there is still a good amount of healthy tooth structure.
At this point, a crown may be considered too excessive. It is up to your dentist to decide whether inlays or onlays can be used instead of a crown. The big benefit of using inlays or onlays is being able to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
