Italian translation:intarsio, otturazione = inlay; capsula (?) = onlay
Explanation:
Intanto ti posso dare il termine per "inlay", secondo Gould-Chiamp Eng/Italian Medical Encyclopedia.

Inlay = intarsio; otturazione. A dental restoration that is formed outisde the tooth cavity and subsequently secured in place with a cementing medium; usually made of metal or porcelain.

C'è un forum ora su Proz che offre il link indicato sotto con un ottimo glossario inglese per il settore odontoiatrico.
Secondo questo link, "Onlay" significa:
A tooth restoration that covers the entire biting surface. Can be gold or porcelain. Serves to the tooth from breakage should the cavity or old filling be too large. Classic dental excellence.

Non sono sicura, ma forse si tratta di una capsula? Mi sembra di aver "subito" questa procedura qualche anno fa presso il mio dentista!
