Indirect restorations are prosthetic tooth surfaces made in a dental laboratory. They include crowns, veneers, and bridges. They are used to protect teeth which are at risk of fracture, improve the appearance of teeth, or in the case of bridges- fill a gap with a false tooth. The process involves specifically shaping your tooth, and then taking a mould which is sent to a dental laboratory. The laboratory then produces the indirect restoration which is returned to be cemented into your mouth.
Various materials are available for making these restorations which can appear gold, silver, or white coloured. At our practice we prefer to use the latest all-ceramic white materials which contain no metal and can be matched very closely to the appearance of your other teeth. We work with several fantastic dental laboratories that produce work of outstanding quality.
