What are dental fillings?
When people need to have a tooth repaired, they want it to feel comfortable and look natural. Our dental materials today look beautiful and are stronger than ever before. Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) restore teeth comfortably and can protect weakened teeth from fractures.
What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?
There several tooth-colored dental materials available. Composite resin is often used in small areas that need to be filled. The dentist places it, uses light to harden the material and polishes it. It can be used conservatively and allows people to retain much of their natural, healthy tooth structure.
Dental ceramics are often recommended where larger areas of tooth structure need to be replaced. These materials are strong, beautiful, long-lasting and can help add strength to or protect a weakened tooth.
