Indirect Restoration

Indirect Restoration

In this technique the restoration is fabricated outside of the mouth using the Dental impressions of the prepared tooth. Common indirect restorations include inlays and onlays, crowns, bridges, and veneers. Usually a dental technician fabricates the indirect restoration from records that we provide of the prepared tooth. The finished restoration is usually bonded permanently with a dental cement. It is often done in two separate visits. Common indirect restorations are done using ceramics or zirconia.

While the indirect restoration is being prepared, a provisory/ temporary restoration is used to cover the prepared part of the tooth, which can help maintain the surrounding dental tissues.
