There are very few side effects. In rare cases a patient is allergic to one of the materials used, in which case another can be subbed.
Who shouldn't use it: If the tooth is very badly damaged, an inlay or onlay may be insufficient to restore functionality to the tooth. A crown or dental implant should be considered in these cases.
