Direct Fabrication

In simple terms, a direct fabrication is any type of dental restoration that occurs inside of the mouth. Most dentists consider a "direct" technique to be any sort of work that occurs chairside, rather than in a dental labratory. An example of a Direct Fabrication would be the application of amalgam fillings. Most cosmetic dental proedures can be either direct of indirect as impressions often need to be made of the entire mouth, and the construction of some cosmetic dental restorations need to be performed in a dental labratory. The upside of a Direct Fabrication is that the procedure can often be completed in one sitting, making it unnecessary for a patient to visit the office again for a follow up treatment.
