Old, unsightly silver fillings can now be replaced with more aesthetic, natural-looking, filling materials such as resins and porcelain. Porcelain fillings are indirect fillings that are made in a dental lab and bonded to the tooth surface for a custom fit.
Advantages of porcelain fillings:
- Less drilling is required to apply a porcelain filling so more of the natural tooth structure can be preserved
- Porcelain fillings are undetectable as they match the natural colour of the tooth, giving you an aesthetically pleasing smile
- Porcelain fillings are very durable and can last from 10 to 30 years
- Porcelain fillings do not expand and contract with temperature changes, reducing the potential for cracking. Also, because porcelain fillings are bonded to the tooth, they have added strength and functionality
