Different Types of Dental Restoration
There are two techniques available for dental restorations
These are usually done in one visit, everything required can be made in the dental clinic. In this technique a malleable or soft filling is placed in the prepared tooth,and the tooth is build-up before the material gets hard. The best thing about direct restorations is they are easy to do, set quickly and can be done by one operator. However, if you have larger fillings to do, then indirect restoration is preferred.
This is a lengthy procedure taking a minimum of 3 visits. For making the restorations, your teeth impressions will be taken in the first visit and depending on the requirement the preparations are made. The restorations are fabricated by a dental technician specifically based on the records provided by the dentist. Indirect restorations include onlays, inlays, bridges, veneers and many others.
