Types of indirect fillings can eliminate aesthetic problems and those related with durability that exist in the case of direct fillings.
At the preparation of the so-called inlay after removing the decay we take an impression of the cavity and prepare the filling in a dental laboratory. Later this will be fixed in the tooth by sticking.
Although compared to direct fillings these are more expensive because of their composition and the technology used, they are more durable due to the fact that they fit better into the cavity. So it is worth considering whether to use different types of indirect fillings or not. It is not all the same how often we have to change fillings. During this procedure the healthy dental structure becomes more and more reduced, so durability is very important in order to keep the valuable dental structure. From this point of view different types of indirect fillings are more advantageous than types of direct fillings.
