Inlay restorations are an option for patients who want a custom filling to repair a decayed or damaged tooth or a defective filling. They are a more conservative treatment than a root canal and crown because they require less removal of the tooth structure. Could inlay restorations be an option for you? Make an appointment with your dentist to find out.Inlay restorations can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite material. They are recommended as treatment for broken teeth, fractured or large fillings, or decayed teeth. Dentists also use them for cosmetic improvement of damaged teeth. Inlays typically require two appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will take molds of your tooth so that your inlay can be custom-made. During the second visit, the inlay will be adjusted and cemented to your tooth. Inlay procedures can be performed using sedation dentistry techniques if you’re anxious about receiving care.
