We understand that you have busy schedules. Trying to find time to care for your oral health can often be put off for a better time.
The CEREC same day tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. Dentists no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated, allowing us to provide you with quality restoration in a fraction of the time.
Fillings are placed in teeth where there is a small area of decay or a crack in the tooth. Traditionally, large areas of tooth structure are removed along with the affected area so that a silver (amalgam) or white filling could be retained. These preps are more aggressive and often go below the gum line.
With advances made in dental materials, composite, or white fillings do not require this excessive removal of tooth because these materials bond to the tooth instead of relying on mechanical retention. More healthy tooth structure is maintained and the fillings stay away from the gums to avoid any gingival irritation.
