Natural Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Even though metal fillings can treat cavities, one of their drawbacks is that they aren’t very “natural looking”. However, with continued advancements in dentistry, problematic teeth can now be treated with tooth-colored bonded fillings. Bonded fillings, or white fillings, are made of an attractive looking composite resin that bonds to the tooth to create a strong protective barrier. The composite resin is aesthetically pleasing since it is customized to your tooth’s unique shade.
White bonded fillings can often be applied in a single appointment. Once the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is removed, the tooth is cleaned and dried. The composite resin is then applied to the tooth and molded into its desired shape. We then use a special light that bonds the composite resin to the tooth to fully restore it.
Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Another attractive option for restoring weakened or decayed back teeth are porcelain inlays or Onlays. These dental restorations are also well-suited for strengthening teeth under heavy chewing loads or treating teeth that have been previously restored.
Porcelain inlays / Onlays offer amazing restorative and cosmetic benefits for your smile. However, one big difference between them and dental crowns is that they only treat a specific section of the tooth’s surface. In comparison, dental crowns treat the tooth’s entire visible surface. As a result, porcelain inlays and Onlays require less tooth preparation and are well-suited for treating less severe types of decay or damage.
Because they are made of high-quality porcelain material, inlays and Onlays are strong, durable, and natural-looking. The porcelain material can be customized to the specific shade of your teeth, ensuring natural-looking results. With proper care, inlays and Onlays can last for many years come.
