Inlays, inherently, are fillings, but they arenТt made in the patientТs mouth, but in laboratory, and after it the dentist glues inlays down into beforehand treated tooth with help of adhesive composition. Inlays are made of ceramic or synthetic materials. So what is the merit of inlays? There are:
- Inlays have very high durability. Inlays are made of high-strength ceramic.
- In two visits, the dentist can treat couple of teeth. In first visit, he treats carious cavities into the group of teeth and makes prints, and second is fixation of inlays into mouth cavity.
- Third, the most important, filling, even perfect, has one demerit Ц it is decreased in size (2%) during process of hardening. It can cause micro tearing of filling from tooth, and like consequence, there is can appear caries. Experienced dentist knows how to avoid such situation, but as the process of shrinkage is invisible and badly controlled, there always exist probability of error. In addition, inlays donТt have such demerit.
