Types :
1. Direct restorations: [Chair Side]
  • Direct restorations are fillings placed immediately into a prepared cavity in a single visit. They include dental amalgam, glass ionomers, and light cured composite fillings.

2. Indirect Restorations: [Laboratory Aided]
  • Indirect restorations generally require two or more visits. They include inlays and onlays
  • An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth. They are custom-made to fit the prepared cavity and are then cemented into place.
  • An onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. Onlays are indicated in situations where a substantial reconstruction is required. However, more of the tooth structure can be conserved compared to the placement of a crown.
