White Fillings


Tooth Filling Options

In the past, dental cavities were filled with a mixture of metal alloys, also known as amalgam. Today, there are two types of white fillings in dentistry: Resin Restorations & Porcelain Onlays

Resin Restorations In Posterior (Back Teeth)

This filling is the replacement for the old silver fillings or amalgam. Resin restorations are bonded to the tooth to provide a seal between the tooth and restoration. Many shades are now available; therefore, when you open your mouth, no one should know that you have any fillings. The technique we use for placement reduces the possibility of post treatment sensitivity. As with all direct restorations, if they are too large, an alternative is needed.


Porcelain Onlays

When the restoration in a posterior tooth is too large, this is the best solution. An onlay covers the functional parts (the top) of the tooth. It is as strong as a crown but much less invasive. The porcelain colour blends with the colour of the natural tooth. An onlay is a long lasting cosmetic restoration, much like a crown.
