     Dental Onlays & Inlays in Thailand

   With time, as we chew and flatten the surface of our teeth due to grinding food, the natural surfaces of our teeth as well
as any existing restorative filling materials are damaged. Inlay and Onlays are considered a stronger option to replace the
damaged part of these teeth.

   Inlays and Onlays can be fabricated from composites, gold, or porcelain. For esthetic purposes composites and porcelains
are most popular form that are being utilized.

   An inlay is referred to as inserted filling that replaces the inside of a tooth where an onlay represents both the inside and
also outside of the tooth structure covering the some or all of the cusps of a tooth.


   Inlays and Onlays are typically done in two visits. At the first session, our dentist at MedAsia Healthcare Complex removes
any tooth decay or an old filling that may be in place and prepares the tooth to correct angles so an inlay or an Onlay be
easily inserted and cemented or bonded. An impression of the prepared tooth is necessary so the dental lab technician can
fabricate the restoration. A temporary filling material is placed while the patient waits for the second appointment.

   At the following visit, the dentist will remove the temporary filling material and tries in the Inlay or Onlay. The dentist
may take an x-ray at this appointment to verify the marginal integrity. Once your dentist is satisfied with the fit, he will
use special dental adhesive to secure the Inlay or Onlay.

Advantages of Dental Inlays & Onlays

• Esthetics that resembles the natural tooth structure in case of porcelain and composites
• Very durable and strong after it has been bonded or cemented
• They stay highly polished without staining overtime except composite Inlays
• They are considered a permanent filling material
• More conservative than a full crown or a cap

Disadvantages of Inlays & Onlays

• Must be done in two appointments unless CEREC is used
• Additional material and laboratory cost makes it a more expensive option


• Patients have to treat it just like natural tooth, floss and brush properly and not abuse while eating food

     Dental Veneers

   Experience The Art of "Dental Extreme Makeover" at MedAsia Healthcare Complex Bangkok, Thailand

   The concept of dental veneers has been around since 1950’s but the materials have improved over the years. A veneer is
basically a thin layer that is applied on the surface of the teeth. Initially the veneers were done in silver, gold, then
composites and over the last 3 decades, porcelain veneers have become the material of choice. Porcelain veneers have
improved significantly within the last 5 years due to new manufacturing technologies as well as advancements in
techniques and placement of these veneers.

How do veneers can help you?

4. Can be use to close diastemas or gaps between the teeth

• Veneers are a much more conservative treatment to protect the teeth compared to crowns

How are dental veneers maintained?

   Just like natural teeth, they must be brushed and flossed 2-3 times daily. Patients also need to subscribe to a regular
dental hygiene schedule

What is Smile Makeover?

   Smile Makeover is a term that was coined by the famous ABC hit series, “ Extreme Makeovers “ and is generally referred to
as a transformation that a patient goes through to have a beautiful set of teeth. There are many ways a patient can have a
smile make over but generally the term is associated with porcelain veneers. Our patients at MedAsia Healthcare Complex
typically have their smile makeover completed as few as two appointments.

How to have a predictable smile makeover in Thailand?

   Our dental specialists at MedAsia Healthcare Complex are experts in cosmetic dentistry and other patients whom
they have their treatment completed with 100% predictability at our center refer many of patients who travel to
Thailand for the very same reason. Our dental specialists take the following steps to make sure that every case is predictable:
1) Review of each patients’ desires and the outcome each person is looking for
2) Pre-operative photography of each patient to review all of the esthetic elements that needs to be modified or improved
3) Review of various smile models and picture gallery with each patient to design an appropriate new smile
4) Diagnostic wax up to be used as a prototype for the final design of the case
5) Communication with our cosmetic dental technician to fabricate the porcelain veneers per design specification
6) Preparation and placement of the prototype restorations so patient and dentist can verify shape and shade
7) Allowing patient to check the final restoration before cementation or bonding

Preparing the tooth.

Dental veneers preparation requires local anesthetic in most cases. After local anesthetic is administered, our dentist
will prepare your tooth depending on the position of the tooth and the desired results that needs to be achieved. On average
your teeth will be modified to approximately 0.50 mm in shape in the front and sometimes on the sides so a porcelain
veneers can be fabricated and adopted easily to the prepared area of the tooth. After the preparation is complete, our
dentist will take an impression of the prepared teeth either in a digital format or by use of a dental silicone. After the
impression, our dentist will fabricate a set of temporaries to act as a prototype of your final smile makeover. Our dentist
will communicate with our cosmetic dental technician on how to fabricate and customize your new teeth.


Once your teeth are fabricated at the laboratory, our dentist will prepare your teeth so your new veneers can be bonded
and glued on. The process will involve removing your prototype temporaries, rinsing and disinfecting the teeth.
Then our dentist will try your veneers and gets your approval before they are bonded in place.
