Indirect fillings, commonly made from porcelain or composite are made in a dental laboratory and are bonded to teeth in a single piece to restore the aesthetics and function. Require a minimum of two appointments.
- The tooth is numbed with a local anaesthetic.
- The cavity is cleaned of infection and prepared for a filling.
- There must be no retentive walls within the preparation so that the Indirect Filling can easily be placed.
- A mould (impression) is taken of the cavity and other teeth to be sent to the laboratory which will manufacture the restoration. The laboratory usually takes 2 weeks to make Indirect Fillings.
- During the interim period, a temporary material is placed in the cavity to seal and protect the tooth.
- The tooth is anaesthetized.
- The temporary filling is removed and the cavity cleaned.
- The tooth is prepared using various bonding agents. A special type of cement then secures the indirect filling.
