Porcelain Inley-Onlay fillings
Porcelain fillings are fillings with superior aesthetics and durability prepared in a laboratory environment. Compared to composite fillings, it is much more compatible with the tooth and neighbouring teeth where they are applied. After the broken, decoyed or old filled part of the tooth is removed, the remaining intact part is scanned and sent to the laboratory. Fillers with excellent aesthetics and function are obtained by taking a model prepared with a delicate technology in a laboratory environment. The most advanced technology is used in the preparation of this porcelain filling, healthy dental tissue in the mouth is untouched, maximum retention is provided with minimal loss of substance. Since they are made of a special compressed porcelain and are not hardened in the mouth, edge leakage is minimal. In addition, these porcelains are the closest to the hardness of the tooth and the most compatible materials with the gums. Since its hardness is very close to the enamel tissue of the tooth, it does not corrode the teeth like other porcelain, nor does it corrode like composite fillings. Especially in case of large material losses, composite filling or crown (coating) should be preferred instead.
How is it done?
The caries is cleaned and a cavity is formed in the tooth and the measurement taken from this cavity is sent to the laboratory. In a lab environment, a model of precision technology, prepared with special IPS machine fills with excellent aesthetics and function is taken and is obtained in the next seance, the glazed porcelain is bonded with a special adhesive into the cavity. Porcelain fillings have been developed to protect healthy dental tissue in cases where there is a lot of substance loss and the tooth needs to be completely reduced and crown application is required. It is preferred instead of amalgam fillings because it is more aesthetic and convenient. They provide an excellent aesthetic, edge harmony and adaptation. IPS porcelain (Leucite reinforced pressable porcelain) fillings are tissue-friendly fillings, they are the materials with the highest biological compatibility. In the porcelain filling method, the healthy tooth tissue in the mouth is not touched. In addition, these porcelains are the closest to the hardness of the tooth and the most compatible materials with the gums. Since its hardness is very close to the enamel tissue of the tooth, it does not wear out like composite fillings. Especially in case of large material losses, composite filler or crown (coating) should be preferred instead
