Are Dark Fillings Holding You Back?
Replace your metal fillings and laugh your loudest, smile your biggest, and show off your pearly whites with abandon. Chicago cosmetic dentist. Dr. Fondriest offers white composite resin and porcelain to replace amalgam and metal fillings. With white restorative dentistry, you no longer have to hide your unsightly dental work. Porcelain inlays and onlays and composite resin fillings are made to look like natural parts of the tooth because they can be dyed to match the exact coloration. While dark metal fillings look conspicuous, only you and your dentist will know you have had a composite filling or porcelain inlay or onlay.
Why Your Dentist May Have Used Metal Fillings
Maybe your previous dentist recommended a metal filling because the tooth was severely damages by decay and needed extra structural support. In some cases, metal fillings are stronger than composite or porcelain. For patients with bruxism, or teeth grinding, the constant extreme pressure may compromise the integrity of the restoration. For these situations, Dr. Fondriest often replaces ugly or dysfunctional metal fillings with white fillings, veneers, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
High Quality Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns in Chicago
These dental restorations can build back tooth function strong enough to withstand teeth grinding while looking like natural teeth. Dr. Fondriest uses porcelain fused to 14+ carat gold. This lighter metal allows for less porcelain material to conceal it, which translates to slimmer, less bulky crowns that look and feel natural.
