Inlay

Inlays for the aesthetic solution of caries damage

One method to restore decayed teeth is the use of inlays. Inlays are such fillings, which aren’t prepared in the dental office, but at the dental laboratory. They are made of ceramic, in order to fit exactly into the prepared tooth.

Which materials are used for inlays?

The basic material of inlays can be different, you and your dentist can decide together:

  • Gold inlays: one of the most perfect materials for inlays which has been used successfully for many years. In case of molar teeth this is one of the best solutions even nowadays. It is regarded as the ultimate restoration, with extremely high strength, durability, toughness and resistance to wear, as the edge of the gold inlay fit closely to the tooth tissue. The only disadvantage of gold inlays is that they aren’t tooth coloured, they aren’t aesthetic at visible places and because of higher material costs they are more expensive.
  • Porcelain (ceramic) inlays: Their composition is similar to ceramic crowns. They are durable and also have the benefit of being able to be coloured to match your natural tooth. So they are the most aesthetic solution and are recommended in case of restoration of molars and premolars.
  • Composite inlays: based on synthetic material, have excellent aesthetic and functional features. Suggested for the restoration of premolars and molar teeth.
