What Is Dental Filling & Types Of Tooth Filling

Porcelain Inlays and tooth-colored restorations Onlays create fillings that are gorgeous and fortify weak teeth.

We are absolutely a mercury-free practice. Nevertheless, a lot of folks are still using silver/mercury fillings in their mouths to date. These fillings are not significantly attractive to the eye, and we know that by inevitable design. Silver/mercury fillings eventually create a weaker tooth framework. Porcelain inlays and tooth-colored restorations Onlays produce fillings that aren’t only gorgeous (or unnoticeable) but also add power to weakened teeth. These restorations are visually pleasing and incredibly durable as a result of new bonding technologies.

Drawbacks of Silver Fillings

Silver fillings have many disadvantages. The borders of the silver filling can wear out, become fragile, or break. That makes the tooth vulnerable and creates an environment where cavities begin once more. As time goes on, the metal of a silver filling extends, contracts, and can break up.

Silver fillings contain Fifty percent mercury. They can destroy, leak, and cause spots on your tooth and gums.

Luckily, silver fillings are now replaceable with the emergence of tooth-colored restorations.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Restorations

There are numerous benefits to tooth-colored restorations. Resin Onlays are bonded to one’s teeth, creating a friendly, top-quality match to the natural tooth. Such repairs remain the best alternative in situations where a lot of the tooth structure is damaged. The tooth continues to be intact and better.

Because the resin found in tooth-colored restorations contains fluoride, it will help protect against decay. The resin looks like natural teeth and will not require positioning at the gum line, which is certainly healthier for your gums!

The effect is a lovely smile!
