Inlays – Onlays
When the tooth damage is so big that it leads to extensive tooth loss, resin fillings may not be enough to protect the tooth from the forces of the oral environment. In this case, the fabrication of an inlay/insert is recommended. These are made either from laboratory resin or porcelain in the laboratory. The procedure requires 2 appointments. In the first one the tooth is freed from decay, shaped and an impression of it is taken. All impressions in our clinic are taken digitally with a special scanner for greater speed and patient convenience. At the second appointment, the inlay/insert is bonded to the tooth with a special mortar.
