Tooth Fillings

Many of you may have silver fillings. For generations they were the standard, for repairing damaged teeth. However, in recent years, we have discovered that they have some major disadvantages and are not ideal for your health or your look. Porcelain inlays and tooth-colored restorations are the new norm.They are safe, strong and look great! Not only do they blend flawlessly with your smile, they are also stronger and are able to strengthen teeth weakened by decay.

  • Porcelain onlays are bonded to the teeth creating a tight and superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
  • They blend flawlessly with your smile. The white resin is barely detectable unlike the silver used in the past.
