Protecting Heavily Filled Cracked Molar Teeth with Indirect Porcelain Ceramic Restorations


At Sparkle Dental Joondalup, we are committed to providing our patients with the best dental care solutions. One of the most effective treatments for heavily filled and cracked molar teeth is the use of indirect porcelain ceramic restorations. This blog will explore the benefits and the process of this advanced dental procedure.

The Benefits of Indirect Porcelain Ceramic Restorations

Strength and Durability

Indirect porcelain ceramic restorations are incredibly strong and durable. Unlike direct fillings, which may weaken over time, porcelain restorations can withstand the pressures of chewing and biting. This makes them an ideal choice for molars, which endure significant stress.

Aesthetic Appeal

Porcelain ceramics closely mimic the natural appearance of teeth. They are custom-made to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural look. This is especially beneficial for patients concerned about the aesthetics of their dental work.


With proper care, porcelain restorations can last many years. They are resistant to staining and wear, making them a long-term solution for protecting your teeth. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices will help maintain their integrity.


Porcelain is a biocompatible material, meaning it is well-tolerated by the gums and oral tissues. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions or sensitivity issues that can sometimes occur with other materials.

The Process of Indirect Porcelain Ceramic Restorations

Initial Consultation

During your first visit, our dental professionals will evaluate the condition of your molar teeth. We will take detailed impressions and digital images to create a precise model of your teeth.

Tooth Preparation

The damaged or decayed portions of your tooth are carefully removed, and the tooth is shaped to accommodate the restoration. A digital scan impression is then taken to ensure a perfect fit.


The digital scan impression is sent to our dental laboratory team, where our skilled technical staff craft your custom porcelain restoration. This process can be completed on the day or take a few weeks dependant on the case.

Temporary Restoration

While your permanent restoration is being made, a temporary one will be placed to protect your tooth and maintain functionality.

Final Placement

Once your porcelain restoration is ready, it is carefully fitted and bonded to your tooth using a strong dental adhesive. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a comfortable and precise fit.

At Sparkle Dental Joondalup, we believe in providing our patients with the highest quality dental care. If you have heavily filled or cracked molar teeth, indirect porcelain ceramic restorations may be the ideal solution for you.
