The tooth is the only structure that once it is affected by decay it only can recover with the help of the dentist. Caries can appear because of the dental structure, the bacteria in the saliva and the oral hygiene.
Once the caries appear the only way to treat them is to clean the cavity very good and to do some minimal invasive treatment. The goal is to preserve as much healthy dental structure as possible and to fill the cavity with biocompatible and esthetic materials.
Direct dental veneers are made in the praxis with composite resins. In teeth with slightly discolorations we can use composite or ceramic veneers.
Inlays are indirect dental fillings (they are made in the dental laboratory).
Their advantages are:
● marginal adaptability,
● minimal marginal infiltration,
● very good occlusal adaptability.
