Often covered by insurance, porcelain fillings blend seamlessly with your real tooth color and age beautifully. Porcelain fillings require specialized equipment and training but the results of a porcelain tooth restoration speak for themselves. Dr Draper has invested in years of specialized training to provide the most state of the art porcelain restorations. BetterDental has invested in the resources to offer 3D digital imaging to create your porcelain filling instead of old fashioned wax impressions. We offer a guarantee on our porcelain fillings and dental restorations. That means if you choose a porcelain filling, implant, bridge, or crown – and it breaks in 3 years, 5 years, or even 50 years – we will restore it without any charge to you. We like to really stand behind our workmanship. Nothing compares to the beauty and longevity of a porcelain filling.
Your porcelain filling procedure can usually be done in a single visit using our CEREC porcelain-sculpting technology. This means there is no need for a temporary filling, or multiple visits. We will digitally scan your tooth using our 3D imaging wand, then create a digital schematic detailing the exact dimensions of the filling. Our computer-asssited porcelain mill uses robotic arms to sculpt your customized filling. In this case, your filling would be installed and ready to go that same day, with a strong, durable bond.
A porcelain inlay is a custom made filling used to repair damage to the tooth’s biting surface. Inlays are suitable for repairing small to medium cavities. Onlays on the other hand are ideal for medium to large areas of damage, where a large portion of the tooths biting surface has decayed. In every case, the best solution is the one which allows us to preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible.
The advent of 3D porcelain sculpting has revolutionized the way all fillings can be done. Until recently, many people with large cavities only had the option of getting a fullcoverage crown. But today with help the help of CEREC technology, conservative porcelain inlays and onlays are more convenient than ever before.
