Inlays, like fillings, serve for the conservation of the teeth.
After caries removal from the affected tooth the dentist takes a digital dental impression which is sent to our associated dental laboratory. In the laboratory a perfect fitting inlay made of ceramics or gold is fabricated based on the model of your teeth. As soon as the inlay is ready, it is sent from the laboratory to the praxis and cemented by your dentist into the tooth. An inlay is characterized by a very high resistance against the immense masticatory forces in the mouth and is sometimes longer lasting than normal fillings.
