Ceramic inlays & onlays
Dental ceramic inlays are a type of dental restoration used to repair damage to a tooth. They are made of ceramic material and are custom-made to fit the specific tooth that needs repair.
The process for placing a ceramic inlay involves preparing the damaged tooth by removing any decay.
The tooth is shaped to make room for the inlay. The inlay is then carefully crafted and cemented into place.
The entire process typically takes two or more visits to the dentist, depending on the complexity of the case.
Inlays are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma, and can also be used to replace old, metal fillings.
A ceramic crown is a type of dental crown made of ceramic material. Dental crowns are caps that are placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are used to support a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma, or to improve the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or misshapen.
During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping it to fit the crown.
An impression of the prepared tooth is then made and sent to a dental laboratory, where the ceramic crown is custom-made to fit over the prepared tooth.
The crown is then cemented onto the tooth during a second visit to the dentist’s office.
