Restorations using porcelain fillings

If your teeth are damaged due to any reason, your dentist can restore your smile with porcelain fillings. These are ideal for any teeth, including those at the front, as they appear just like your teeth — no one will be able to tell that they are fillings.

When Can You Use Porcelain Fillings for Restorations?

Porcelain fillings can repair a tooth with a new cavity or replace an old amalgam filling, making it look as if your teeth have returned to perfect condition. They can also be used to fix a damaged tooth broken due to an accident.

Benefits of Porcelain Fillings

The main benefit of porcelain fillings is that they match the color of your natural teeth. However, they also have other advantages that lead people to choice them for restorations even for out-of-sight molars. For instance, another advantage over amalgam fillings is that porcelain never cracks or suffers small fissures, which can lead to further decay of the tooth. Nor will they expand under heat and crack your tooth itself. Although rare, this can happen with amalgam fillings.

Finally, porcelain is a strong material that can last many years before requiring a replacement — usually at least 15 years but sometimes more than 20 years. Porcelain fillings are more durable than composite resin (another material that can be matched to the color of your teeth), and, unlike composite resin, they are resistant to stains.
