Porcelain fillings are one of the best filling options available. Dental porcelain is extremely strong making it ideal for cracked teeth or large fillings. Covering the whole tooth, porcelain fillings provide extra protection from food debris and plaque build up and create a more natural look.
Unlike normal fillings, porcelain fillings, aren’t built up in your the mouth during your dentist appointment, they are custom-made from a dental impression or scan and are crafted with precision in a laboratory or in-house. To ensure your porcelain fillings are the right colour, we match the porcelain to your normal tooth colour. The porcelain filling is then bonded onto your tooth to strengthen and reinforce it.
Porcelain fillings are more expensive than other fillings, though given they are stronger, resistant to staining and provide greater protection by covering the entire tooth many patients prefer this option. When you go for your dental check up, your dentist will be able to provide you with a cost estimate and answer any questions you have about the procedure.
