White porcelain fillings is a wonderful option if you are having cavities filled or if you would like to replace your older, unsightly metal fillings.
Sometimes, a tooth is treatment planned to be restored with a conventional filling but the decay or fracture is so extensive that a conventional filling would compromise the structural integrity of the restored tooth by possibly undermining the remaining tooth structure or providing substandard opposition to biting forces. These factors will significantly weaken the tooth. In such situations, a porcelain filling is placed in a cavity to restore the look and function of the tooth.
This procedure takes two visits with our dentists. The resulting porcelain filling is a much more esthetic dental restoration that will last for many years and strengthen your tooth.
