A Better Approach to Tooth-Colored Fillings
Still, many people are unhappy that composite fillings have a relatively high failure rate. They may wonder whether they have to go back to metal amalgam fillings to get long-lasting results.
Not at all. We offer a much more attractive option that also has a lower failure rate than metal amalgam fillings: ceramic fillings, sometimes described as porcelain inlays or onlays. These are made of high-durability advanced ceramics. In one 15-year study, they had a failure rate of just 1.1%, lower than any kind of filling: even less than gold!
The advanced ceramic material allows these fillings to resist fractures that would affect either the restoration or the tooth.
Thanks to our CEREC system, these fillings can be completed in just one visit. They’ll be custom-crafted while you wait so that they precisely fit your teeth. There’s no hassle of a second visit to get these highly durable fillings.
Plus, you’ll love the fact that these fillings are so closely matched to your natural teeth that even you may be unable to see where they are.
