A cosmetic dentist can use inlays and coatings in situations where a crown might be undesirable or unnecessary. The inlays strengthen the existing structure of the tooth and the inlays cover the cusp of the tooth. Both are attached to restore the integrity and functionality of the tooth in a natural way. Both inlays and inlays are considered indirect fillings.
This means that they are created outside the mouth, unlike traditional dental fillings that are placed directly on the tooth during the procedure. Typically, a dental lab will manufacture inlays and coatings in a dental lab. Then, the aesthetic dentist will glue it to the tooth that is in poor condition. When you're missing more than half of a tooth or if a large amount of decay weakens the integrity of the tooth, a filling is no longer the best treatment option.
In these cases, we can recommend an inlay, a coating or a crown. These cosmetic dental procedures can help your teeth regain their normal appearance and function. Cosmetic dentists use these fillings to help restore the patient's tooth and, at the same time, ensure that the tooth looks clean and healthy. Cosmetic dentists often perform certain procedures that help improve teeth and, at the same time, ensure that the procedure benefits the health and functionality of the tooth.
After a few weeks of recovery, the cosmetic dentist may recommend a follow-up appointment to ensure that the tooth is adapting well to the filling. While inlay and coating treatments resolve significant dental problems, a cosmetic dentist will handle the procedure. When there is a spot or infected area between the cusps of a molar, the cosmetic dentist will recommend an inlaid filling. When more than half of the tooth's biting surface is damaged, the cosmetic dentist usually uses an inlay or coating to restore it.
A common problem that many people face is the existence of spaces between the teeth that a cosmetic dentist would notice.
