Inlays & Onlays Procedure in Turkey
Our dentist will examine the tooth and the overall health of the mouth. During the first visit the dentist will prepare the damaged tooth and create a molded impression of it. Computer softwares are used to take measurements of the area and craft the perfect fit. The inlay/onlay is either fabricated at the clinic or at a certified dental laboratory. Until the permanent material is created, a temporary restoration may be used to protect the tooth.
During the second visit the temporary restoration is replaced with the permanent one. The dentist will ensure the fit is perfect and check the bite to make sure there are no problems. If the restoration fits perfect, it is bonded to the tooth and the margins are polished.
