What’s Important To Know About Indirect Fillings?
Mark Teach DDS, an experienced Buffalo family dentist explains everything you need to know about indirect fillings in the following educational dental video. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a dental appointment, please contact us today.
An indirect filling is a filling that is constructed outside of the mouth, which requires the dentist to prepare the tooth and somehow transmit that preparation to the laboratory to fabricate the indirect filling. This can be done with a physical impression, but video images of the preparation are becoming more frequent in usage, and the filling is developed based on that image. The filling is then brought back either at that same visit or at a subsequent visit, and it is bonded or cemented into the damaged tooth.
