Treatment (for small cavities)2

Hybrid-ceramic inlay

 Hybrid-ceramic has the strength like metal and beauty like ceramic, so they're used for large cavities in which composite resin can't be replaced.

Dentists drill the decayed part and prepare the tooth, take an impression and make a plaster model on your first visit and bond it into place during your second visit.















<pros and cons>

Hybrid-ceramic comes in a range of shades that closely match the colour of an individual's tooth. Due to this strength like metal, and hardness like your own tooth, they're comfortable if you bite. Two visits to the dentist are required.

They are not covered by Japanese health insurance. Over time, the line between hybrid-ceramic and tooth may become stained from tea, coffee, tabacco etc.
