Metal Free Restorations
We feel strongly that the potential side effects of mercury should be eliminated by replacing them with BEAUTIFUL white bonded restorations.
The back 2 teeth used to be filled with dark silver fillings and they were replaced with these beautiful bonded restorations.
With the daily stresses exerted on your teeth, old restorations (fillings) sometimes need to be replaced. After a period of time, these fillings go dark with age or can fracture from decay.
Porcelain inlays and onlays are an esthetic alternative and they look exactly like the rest of your natural tooth.
Inlays and onlays protect and restore large portions of the decayed tooth, much like a large filling. An inlay covers more of the inside decayed part of the tooth and an onlay covers some of the inside but also more of the outer structure of the tooth.
Because they are made with porcelain, they are customized to your natural tooth shade and look like your natural tooth. Porcelain inlays and onlays are made from the same strong, tooth colored material that is used for crowns and bridgework. A customized shade makes them virtually undetectable.
A “cap”, “jacket” or “crown” will restore a broken, heavily filled or cracked tooth to its original size and shape. This may also be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more apt to fracture. Crowns can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improve the appearance of your teeth.
