Dental Inlays

Dental inlays improve decay or trauma damaged teeth. This restoration treatment is perfect for the back teeth. The inlays are typically made from porcelain (ceramic) to create a seamless blend with the natural teeth.

The inlay sits within the tooth, in line with the prepared tooth.

What Happens During an Inlay Procedure?

Your inlay procedure will consist of the following:

  • Local anaesthetic ensures there is no pain during the preparation
  • Decay is removed from the tooth
  • The remaining tooth structure is precisely prepared to receive an inlay

A Cerec machine is then used to:

  1. Capture an image of the prepared tooth for the milling machine. This usually takes around 45 minutes.
  2. Once milled, the inlay is checked for fit and adjusted if necessary. After fitting, your dentist polished the inlay.

Inlays last for many years with proper care.
