Allentown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- When trauma has left teeth damaged, individuals have several options that will restore their smile. Inlay restorations are a conservative route that many choose to effectively repair the damage. The process is more evasive than having a crown placed as less of the tooth structure is removed while preparing the area for the procedure. Helping patients regain their beautiful smiles, Suburban Dental Associates is now offering inlay restorations this spring.
The process is often used when a tooth or filling has been fractured or if there is decay. Patients wanting to enhance their smile will turn to inlay restorations as they will provide an improved smile with a minimum amount of dental work. The process will take at least two appointments to be completed. During the first visit with the dentist in Lehigh County, impressions will be taken of the mouth that will be used to create both custom and temporary inlays. Once the molds have been created, the tooth is numbed while the decay and old filling are removed. The dentist will rinse the area and prepare it for the temporary restoration, which will protect the tooth between visits.
Between appointments, the impressions are sent to a dental laboratory to be fabricated based on three-dimensional images to ensure the highest degree of accuracy. During the next visit, the dentist will remove the temporary piece and carefully cement the permanent inlay in place. Once inserted, they will make any necessary adjustments to provide a comfortable bite for the patient. The dentist will provide a detailed care plan, which includes proper dental hygiene, regular appointments at the dentistry, and a balanced diet, to get the longest life out of the filling.
Suburban Dental Associates and their skilled team can bring the sparkle back to any smile through their inlay restoration procedure. Those interested in learning more about the process can visit their website or call 610-820-9900 to speak to a leading dentist in the Quakertown area.
