Tooth cavities are a major concern for children as well as adults. The composition of your teeth is irreversibly damaged and the body can’t heal the damage by itself. A hollow develops and gets bigger due to the caries bacteria. The diffusion of caries can only be stopped by removing all affected parts of the tooth. Afterwards, the hollow will be treated with a filling or an inlay. These are matched to the color of your teeth and are almost invisible.
Ceramic Fillings – Inlays
Ceramic fillings are very strong and resistant and are aesthetically ideal. They have proved very effective. They are being made in our dental laboratory after making a cast of your teeth. There are a number of different methods to make them but they are all very time consuming and are therefore a little pricier.
Ceramic fillings have to be fitted using a plastic adhesive according to the so called adhesive method. This does not only ensure a good bond but also a stabilisation of the tooth.
Rigid panels are metal fillings. They are modelled and cast in our dental laboratory after making a cast of your teeth. This is the most effective to reproduce teeth that are as true to nature as possible.
Rigid inlays are practical and last almost infinitely if cared for correctly and are made of high-carat gold alloys. Their complex and costly production as well as increased material and laboratory costs makes them a little pricier.
Rigid panels, ceramic fillings and lab-fabricated synthetic fillings are all inlays. It will take at least two sessions to produce inlay fillings (laboratory).
