An inlay is a dental filling that is mold into the grooves of the tooth. Inlays don’t extend to the cusp of teeth. With the help of biocompatible materials, the tooth is restored to its proper form and function. The procedure would involve creating a small hole in the center of the tooth and the cavity is cleaned out. Inlays can be of either. An inlay refers to a filling that fills in a concave cavity in the tooth, but does not extend to and around the borders of the tooth (aka the cusps). These are referred to as onlays.

Fillings, Gold (Inlays) Gold fillings, also called inlays or onlays, are composed of an alloy of gold, copper and other metals. This type of dental filling is usually considered the most durable, lasting 20 years or more, but it is also the most costly.

A dental inlay is a type of restoration that typically looks like natural teeth and fixes an existing tooth that is too damaged to support a tooth filling, but not so much that it needs a dental crown. It covers the chewing surface between the cusps, while onlays restore one or more fractured cusps.   It depends on the size of the filling. If it is more than have a tooth filling then I would consider an onlay. I would prefer an onlay vs an inlay personally as it sits 'on' top of the tooth rather than 'in' the tooth so when you bite down it has more surface area to spread the load. Google onlay or inlay if you want to know the difference.
