For the first step of this convenient procedure, your dentist will file away and remove the decayed areas of the tooth. Then an impression of the tooth is taken and delivered to a dental lab. Using either gold, porcelain or composite resin, the restorative inlay or onlays will be developed and ready in around three weeks or less. For your convenience, you’ll be fitted with a short term inlay or onlay while your permanent ones are being developed.
On your next appointment at All About You Dental Care, your new inlay or onlay will be set in your mouth and held in position with dental cement. Your tooth will appear and feel natural.
