Revitalize Your Smile with Mercury-Free Fillings
At Pannu Dental Group, we’re proud to be a mercury-free practice, prioritizing both the beauty and strength of your smile. If you still have silver/mercury fillings, we understand that their appearance may not be pleasing, and they can weaken your tooth structure over time. That’s why we offer a superior alternative – Porcelain Inlays and Tooth-Colored Restorations (Onlays).
The Disadvantages of Silver Fillings
Silver fillings come with several disadvantages:
- Wear and Weakness: Over time, the edges of silver fillings can wear down, become weak, or even break, leaving your tooth vulnerable to new cavities.
- Metal Expansion and Contraction: Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury, and with age, they can expand, contract, and even split. They may also corrode, leak, and cause unsightly stains on your teeth and gums.
The Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations
Tooth-colored restorations offer numerous benefits:
- Superior Fit: Resin onlays are bonded tightly to your teeth, providing an excellent fit compared to silver fillings. They are beneficial when a significant portion of your tooth structure has been lost, ensuring it remains intact and strong.
- Fluoride Content: These restorations contain fluoride, aiding in decay prevention. The resin wears like natural teeth and doesn’t require placement at the gum line, promoting healthier gums.
The result? A stunning, natural-looking smile that exudes confidence.
Ready to Replace Your Silver Fillings with Tooth-Colored Restorations?
We’ve got you covered with a seamless two-appointment process:
Your First Appointment:
- We remove the old filling and any additional decay.
- An impression of your teeth is taken, and a model is sent to our lab.
- A temporary onlay is placed on the tooth to protect it.
At the Lab:
Our skilled technicians meticulously craft a resin restoration to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Your Second Appointment:
- We remove the temporary onlay.
- A conditioning gel is applied to your tooth to prepare it for the new onlay.
- Bonding cement is carefully placed on the tooth, and a high-intensity light bonds the resin in place.
- We polish the tooth, leaving it looking and feeling entirely natural.
It’s time to rediscover your confident smile.
With tooth-colored restorations, your teeth regain natural strength, appearance, and protection.
