Types of fillings: inlays, onlays and crowns

Cosmetic Restoration

 

Composite Resin (Fillings), Inlays, Onlays & Crowns 


Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-color resin material is applied and hardened with a special light which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore and improve your smile. Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic restorations that mimic the appearance of natural teeth.  Bonding is used to repair decaying teeth, repair chipped or cracked teeth, improve appearance, close spaces between teeth, change shape of teeth, and to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.

 

Before your treatment begins, Dr. Roseroot will discuss with you all of your options including the health value of using mercury free fillings. In preparation for this discussion it may be helpful to understand the two basic types of dental fillings: direct and indirect

 

Direct dental fillings are fillings placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit. Dr. Roseroot prepares the tooth, places a mercury free filling, and adjusts it in just one appointment.

 

Indirect dental fillings generally require two or more visits. They include inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, and bridges. During the first visit, Dr. Roseroot prepares the tooth and makes an impression of the area to be restored. Dr. Roseroot then places a temporary covering over the prepared tooth. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory, which creates the dental restoration. At the next appointment, the restoration is cemented into the prepared cavity and adjusted as needed.

 

Inlays and Onlays:

Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Unlike silver fillings made from metals that may cause further damage to teeth, these cosmetic fillings look extremely natural and typically require that far less of the tooth be removed.

 

Crowns:

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth.
