Restorative dental procedures are divided into two broad categories, direct restorations and indirect restorations. Direct restorations involve the placement of a malleable filling into a prepared tooth and building up the material before it becomes set and hard. One of the advantages of direct procedures is that they are relatively quick and can be performed in a single visit. Indirect restorative procedures refer to the process of creating the restoration out of the mouth using dental impressions made of the patient’s teeth, the finished product is then permanently sealed to the tooth using dental cement usually taking an average of two visits, however more complex restorations take more time. Common indirect restorations include crowns, bridges, veneers, onlays and inlays.
