Ceramic Inlays

User Level:
Posted by: charliewh  (8 years ago)
I am confused as I thought that the material of my inclays is ceramic. Now I read in your blog that for ceramic inlays an impression needs to be taken and that normally after one week the ceramic inlays are glued into the patient’s mouth.
I did not have to wait for a week and got my inlays inmediately with the removal of my amalgam inlays. Are they not ceramic ones then, or is it possible that a different tequnique was used?

Dear Charliewh!

If you did not undergo a dental scan or have a dental impression made, chances are that your inlay is a ceramic-reinforced composite filling.

Ceramic inlay procedures are slightly different; one week is the standard time taken, however with CAD-CAM machines nowadays, a faster implementation is possible.

Ideally, have a chat with your dentist regarding your options and the most suitable treatment!
