Inlay restoration takes two appointments. During your first appointment, several impressions will be made to create your inlay and temporary restoration. After numbing, the dentist removes any decay and old fillings. The surface is then cleaned and shaped to fit the inlay. The temporary filling is applied to protect your tooth.
At your second appointment, a new inlay is cemented into place. Adjustments may be required to ensure a proper fit and bite. Your dentist will provide you with proper aftercare instructions. Please note that proper oral hygiene practice and regular dental visits will keep your inlays in optimal condition.
