We repair posterior teeth practically invisibly.
With the dental inlay technique, we repair the posterior teeth in such a way that the repair is practically invisible. Patients get a healthy and natural smile.
The first thing the dentist does is evaluate and decide if a dental inlay can be done or if, for example, a dental crown is recommended.
Indeed, it is not always possible to carry out this type of treatment. The damage to the tooth cannot be very great, so the dentist will determine its viability. Generally, the tooth must be intact or with a small restoration. In addition, the patient must have a history of low caries index.
What is a dental inlay?
Dental inlay is a technique used to repair posterior teeth that have moderate cavities, small fractures, cracks, and in root canal teeth.
The special thing about this technique is that it allows the tooth to be repaired almost invisibly thanks to the fact that the materials used have a color and texture similar to that of the tooth. Specifically, the materials used are porcelain and composite resin, which allow repairs to last up to ten years. That is, they last longer than conventional resins. In addition, they do not expand or contract with changes in temperature.
