What are the procedures for porcelain inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays are also called indirect fillings. It requires at least two dental appointments for restoration. In the first visit, any old filling or decay is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the process. Impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab. The temporary filling is then placed on the tooth until your second appointment. During the second visit, the temporary filling is removed, and the porcelain onlay is bonded in place to the tooth.
