Porcelain Fillings

Porcelain is a safe, strong, and durable material used to restore the health and function of your teeth. Dental grade porcelain is used in many cosmetic dentistry procedures including:

Porcelain Fillings

Porcelain fillings have many advantages that metal fillings do not.

  • Porcelain can be colored to match the shade of your natural teeth so the filling is hidden and does not detract from your beautiful smile.
  • The porcelain matches tooth enamel in translucency, texture, and color.
  • The porcelain does not discolor your teeth over time.
  • Dental porcelain is as strong as your tooth's enamel and will last a lifetime.
There are many health advantages to porcelain fillings as well as the aesthetic advantages. Porcelain does not contain any mercury and does not expand and contract with changing temperature. Traditional metal fillings may contain mercury and they weaken the teeth over time because they expand with heat and contract with cold temperatures. This weakening may lead to cracking of the tooth and the tooth may be lost. Porcelain helps hold the tooth together and adds strength. Your teeth will be stronger with porcelain fillings and should not weaken over time.

Metal fillings have a tendency to discolor teeth and teeth whitening treatments may not be able to correct the discoloration. Your white smile will be preserved with the use of dental porcelain and you will feel more comfortable showing off your beautiful smile. And dental procedures you have done will not show if you decide to have porcelain instead of metal.
