At A-Dental Center, in North Hollywood, CA patients of all ages can have their smiles assessed and learn about the many ways they can improve oral health and appearance. One treatment readily available at this practice for addressing large areas of decay is porcelain inlays.
Porcelain inlays are restorations made specifically for patients with areas of decay that are too large for fillings but not large enough to warrant a full dental crown. Porcelain inlays are ceramic restorations made to fit into the tooth where the area of decay has occurred. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat finds them to be the most conservative method for the treatment of larger cavities.
Decay is caused by poor oral hygiene habits. Acids will eat away at the enamel of the teeth and result in large holes. These holes, if left untreated, can deepen and affect the dental pulp inside of the tooth. The dental pulp is a mass of tissues which houses the nerves of the tooth. Once reached with decay, the tooth can become painful and require root canal therapy. Avoiding this is best, and can be done with better oral hygiene, which reduces the risk of decay.
If the cavity is fairly large, a filling may not be a sufficient way to seal off the tooth. This is when a porcelain inlay is used. Porcelain inlays are made using molds of the tooth and is fabricated to restore the damaged area. It is bonded into the tooth where it is needed and provides a replacement of the missing tooth structure.
