fix a cavity or a broken tooth? If you have you probably were thinking to yourself, what the heck is that? Inlays and onlays are usually prescribed when you have a large cavity or are missing a large portion of your tooth and need a more resilient material. In these situations resin or amalgam fillings wouldn’t do the trick because they would not be able to hold up over time against the force of your bite. Inlays and onlays solve the problem of needing more strength in a restoration without having to take the next step towards a crown. Inlays and onlays can be performed in one visit with the use of Cerec technology. Cerec allows you to fabricate a custom restoration out of porcelain outside of the mouth. This restoration is then cemented into place. It used to be that in order to do an inlay or onlay you need to prepare the tooth, take an impression, send that to a lab, wait 2-3 weeks with a temporary in your tooth, and THEN come back and cement the permanent restoration into place. With Cerec technology you can leave the office with a custom made restoration permanently cemented into place in one visit. It eliminates the need to deal with impression material, the wait until you get your final restoration, or the worry that you will lose your temporary filling why you are waiting all that time.]]>
