Indirect Restorations

When we talk about dental restorations we have to highlight the 2 main categories: Direct Restorations and Indirect Restorations. Direct Restorations are the ones were the dentist perform directly in the mouth of the patient inserting or aplying an especific material and usually those are elaborated only in one session while in the other case, Indirect Restoration are the ones the dentist prepare a cavity or the whole piece to receive either an Inlay, Onlay or full Crown made in the Laboratory, reason why it is necessary at least 2 sessions for the procedure.

The materials used for Indirect Restorations can be gold or base metal alloys, but recently a new composite is rapidly positioning in the top as the best option for Indirect Restorations, and this is the new Signum universal and special composite.

What makes this composite unique is that is made of microfine fiber particles and a special matrix formula that interact together to ensure a natural looking, higher resistance to fractures and a very aesthetic restoration.

Although many people hear more often about the ceramic restorations and their long durability, we can surely say that the success of a composite restoration depends mainly on the skills and experience of the dentist at the time of adjusting and bonding the composite to the natural tooth.
