Composite fillings, also known as tooth colored fillings, are designed to match the natural appearance of your teeth. They are used to restore a decayed tooth instead of mercury silver fillings that tend to darken the tooth and leak over time.
For example, once the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, we will place several layers of the tooth-colored composite onto this tooth to return it to a natural, beautiful shape.
For years, people that have had dental crowns put in have had to deal with the unsightly grey line along there gums that develops from porcelain-fused to metal crowns. If the dentist was working with low quality metals, the line would actually turn black, marring your smile permanently. Within the last few years, there have been many advancements in cosmetic dentistry, one of which is Zirconia crowns. They help eliminate the dreaded black line. Zirconia Crowns have several advantages of both traditional Gold Crowns and Porcelain. Strength and Longevity: Zirconia is virtually indestructible whereas Porcelain crowns are prone to chipping. Crowns have a lifetime of around 10 years. Zirconia should last a lifetime. Less tooth Removal: In cases where their is not much room for porcelain build up – for example if an tooth abutment is already quite bulky, a Zirconia Crown can be used because if provides more strength in less volume than a porcelain crown.
Have you ever noticed dark, unattractive old fillings that show when you smile or laugh? Porcelain Inlays and Onlays are a simple painless solutions to help you create a beautiful smile. Inlays and Onlays are high quality restorations made of porcelain or Zirconia, extremely strong, long lasting and they help restore and protect the tooth against further damage. An Inlay covers only one or two surfaces of the damaged tooth and is used to restore a small amount of decay. An Onlay actually covers more areas of the tooth, generating a wider area of restoration. Almost any unsightly silver or gold filling can be replaced with a beautiful porcelain Inlay in just two visits. If you want to smile with confidence, inlays and onlays are your aesthetic and enduring choice!
