If a large cavity develops, a traditional filling may not be strong enough to maintain the tooth’s structure, or it may not be possible to restore the filling directly as it is too deep. These larger teeth must also withstand a lot of pressure from chewing. Therefore, inlays are often used to provide extra strength or cover large areas.
Inlays are restorations used for larger cavities.
They are created using a digital 3D scan of your mouth which is sent to our dental technician to fabricate the inlay. Inlays are made of very strong materials such as ceramic or metal.
