Looking for a permanent solution for repairing or restoring your damaged teeth, bringing back that natural look? Porcelain Fillings is your answer to your problems.
What are Porcelain Fillings?
Dental fillings are used to restore your cavities and damaged teeth. There are many types of fillings available today, like gold, amalgam, composite resin, porcelain, etc. But which is the best option among these?
Our team at 5th Ave Smile recommends fillings made of porcelain material for top-quality long-lasting, natural-looking teeth. Porcelain fillings are used in cases where a greater amount of tooth structure is damaged.
Benefits of Porcelain Fillings
Why are porcelain fillings considered better than other fillings materials? Here is the answer:
- Hard, compact and durable
- Not prone to temperature variations
- High resistance to stain and abrasion
- Free of mercury
- Less likely to leak than metal fillings
- Doesn’t cause any infection
- Preserves more natural tooth structure
- Natural appearance
Porcelain Fillings Procedure
After primary consultation, the dentist will determine if the patient can get porcelain fillings or not.
At first, anesthesia is administered by the dentist. Then the damaged parts of the tooth are removed and adequately cleaned from bacteria and debris. If the affected portion is near the root, it may affect the nerves. So, a liner is applied at first.
Now it’s time to apply the porcelain filler. It is done in layers, where each layer is hardened using a curing light. Finally, the porcelain is trimmed, shaped, and polished to look like natural teeth. After the procedure, you may experience teeth sensitivity, but it is normal and can be ignored.
