About the Service
Gentle Family Dentistry is a mercury-free practice. Nevertheless, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths that have been used in the past. These fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure and they are not esthetically pleasing. Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) create fillings that are unnoticeable and also add strength to weakened teeth. The new bonding technologies make these restorations very strong and beautiful to an eye.
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations
There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. They closely match natural tooth color and appearance.The resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. It also creates the tight fit to the natural tooth. This kind of restorations can be used when much of the tooth structure is missing so that the tooth can remain intact. They are easily used on front and back teeth without compromising esthetics, and if damaged they can be repaired.
