The tooth is cleared off all decayed areas including dry rot areas.
Correction of lines that may hinder reliable measurement of “concave/undercut” areas and preparation of the porcelain bit by using suitable filling materials.
Precise measurement of the tooth to be crowned with porcelain and delivery of the data to the laboratory
Temporary loading of the roots with a suitable filling material
Rehearsal of the porcelain onlay-inlay bit that anatomically copies the missing tissue of the tooth
The porcelain filling parts must be in complete compliance with the tooth. If no problems are observed, the porcelain bit is pasted to and integrated with the tooth by using an adhesive system during the same session.
The treatment is complete.
The treatment is complete in two sessions and the second session takes place 1-3 days after the first one.
If there is a problem with the measurements or preparation of the tooth and if it has become necessary to take the measurements again, a third session may be required.
Inlay and onlay fillings can also be prepared in computer environment according to the 3D image of the mouth taken with special oral scanners.
For this practise, a clinic needs to have a scanning system, also called cad-cam. With certain cad-cam systems, it is also possible to finish inlay onlay fillings in one single day.
