Porcelain Fillings Q & A
What are porcelain fillings?
Porcelain fillings, also known as inlays, are hard tooth-colored fillings that can repair your tooth if you have minor decay, a crack, or another type of tooth trauma. Unlike silver or gold fillings, porcelain fillings blend in perfectly with the color of your natural teeth.
What are the benefits of porcelain fillings?
There are many benefits associated with porcelain fillings, as these fillings are:
- White in color
- Effective restorations
Because porcelain fillings blend in perfectly with your natural tooth color, people won’t notice them on your teeth. White fillings can keep your smile beautiful and your confidence level high. Porcelain fillings reduce the chance of developing future tooth damage or decay.
Are porcelain fillings right for me?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for porcelain fillings, Dr. Ilan reviews your symptoms and oral health history. He examines your teeth and gums and takes dental X-rays. If you have moderate to severe tooth decay, you might require a dental crown or even a root canal. Dr. Ilan personalizes each treatment to give you the best outcome and enhance your beautiful smile.
