There Are Different Fillings

Your tooth restoration in Cypress can be done in a few ways, let us help you decide

We rarely use silver/mercury fillings in our practice anymore. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Porcelain inlays and tooth colored restorations (onlays) create fillings that are not only beautiful and unnoticeable but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Silver Fillings vs Tooth-Colored Resorations

Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with tooth-colored restorations in Cypress

Silver fillings have many drawbacks. The edges of the silver filling can wear down, become weak or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and lets cavities get started once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands and contracts, causing cracks to develop in the tooth. Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury. They can corrode, leak, and cause stains on your teeth and gums. There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin onlays are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger. Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contains fluoride, this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums! The result is a beautiful smile!

"We Can Replace Your Silver Fillings"

"We Can Replace Your Silver Fillings"

You can have your silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored restorations

"This process requires two appointments. At your first appointment, the old filling is removed along with any additional decay. An impression is made of your teeth. A model of your teeth is made and sent to the lab. A temporary onlay is placed on the tooth. At the lab, a porcelain restoration is carefully made to fit your tooth precisely and look natural. At your second appointment, the temporary onlay is removed. A conditioning gel is placed on your tooth to prepare it for the new onlay. Bonding cement is placed on the tooth and a high-intensity light bonds the porcelain to the tooth, which is then polished. Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!"
