What Are Porcelain Inlays?

Porcelain inlays are typically an indirect filling comprising of porcelain material fixed to a cavity in a tooth, and cemented into position. Using accurate impressions of the prepared tooth, this technique includes fabricating the restoration at the mouth’s exterior, instead of placing a soft filling into the prepared teeth prior to setting the harder material.

Why Get Porcelain Inlays?

The material used for porcelain inlays has a high degree of durability, and it closely resembles the appearance of your teeth. Apart from increasing protection and strength to your natural tooth structure, it also helps your bite. Due to the customized fit of inlays and complicated design, there is lesser bacterial leakage, in comparison to regular fillings. It reduces wear and tear on your bite, makes durable biting surface and a healthy gum line, with perfect contouring to the affected tooth.

The Process of Getting Porcelain Inlays

You need at least two dental visits to complete this treatment. The first visit will include tooth preparation, with an objective to eliminate as little structure as possible for restoration of tooth. The area in question is numbed with local anesthesia, before being removed by an air-abrasion device, dental laser or a drill. On removal of decay, tooth impression is taken and sent to the lab. Till the inlay is prepared, a temporary restoration is placed. One can also consider visiting a dentist who gives an option to provide single visit restoration.
