Direct restorations (fillings) and Onlays
ANALYZE THE BEST WAY TO RESTORE A TEETH
Depending on the size and shape of the cavity, tooth restoration can be achieved either by: direct restoration (requiring a single visit) or an onlay (requiring two visits).
Direct restorations (fillings) are used when a small portion of the tooth needs to be replaced. The material of choice is composite – a tooth-color material bonded to the teeth strengthening its structure and restoring its shape and function.
If tooth damage is not severe, onlays are the solution. These are shaped replacement materials fitted into the tooth cavity, being an intermediate solution between a direct restoration and a crown.
Onlays only replace the missing dental tissue; therefore they just require the removal of decayed areas of the tooth. They are made of pure porcelain or ceramic materials, and are bonded to the tooth using bonding technology.
