  • Dental inlays and onlays are indirect fillings restorations used to repair or recreate the tooth anatomy that have a mild to moderate amount of decay. Inlays and onlays can also be placed on teeth that have undergone some fracturing if the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown. The two main types of inlays and onlays are made from resin or porcelain because they can be coloured to look natural. Prisma Dental works with 100% porcelain.

  • People need to realize that the infant´s oral health must be initiated during development and pregnancy. The mother´s diet habits during pregnancy are key to the adequate teeth formation that starts on the sixth week of development. Consuming excess sugar and junk food during pregnancy may interfere with the adequate calcification of the infant´s teeth and with this increase the possibility of the baby developing cavities.
