One of the latest innovations in materials used for dental fillings is porcelain or ceramic fillings. These fillings are made with a highly dense porcelain material that matches the color of your teeth and is completely inert, lasting you a lifetime. These fillings are very compatible to the biology of your teeth, however they are not usually used for molars, as they cannot last with constant chewing over time.
Resin fillings are made using a mixture of plastics and glass particles that can be colored to match your teeth exactly. The fillings are injected into the cavity, where they are hardened using UV light, and should last for years. These fillings are best for the more visible parts of the teeth, as they can be color matched very well. One big advantage is that these fillings also require less drilling than traditional metal fillings.schedule an appointment today at 561.276.6684
