Porcelain Fillings for Cavities

By rozenberg

Treating Cavities with Porcelain Fillings in NYC

Porcelain fillings offer the long-lasting durability of silver fillings, along with more aesthetically-pleasing results. The coloring and composition of porcelain fillings reflect that of natural teeth; gone are the days of feeling self-conscious about silver caps covering your teeth. Instead, you can show off your sparkling set of pearly whites with ease!

Opting for porcelain fillings can also maintain proper tooth structure. Unlike silver fillings, which require the removal of tooth structure for proper placement, porcelain fillings require only the decayed area of your tooth be removed. Additionally, porcelain fillings are not prone to expansion over time, unlike their silver counterparts.

Your porcelain fillings procedure will require two visits. Your initial appointment will focus on removing the cavity and cleaning the surrounding area in preparation for your filling. Afterwards, an impression will be made and sent to a lab to make your customized porcelain filling and you will be fitted with a temporary filling until your second visit. During your second appointment, your cosmetic dentist will remove your temporary filling and place your new porcelain filling, which will be bonded to your teeth using a high intensity light. Once they are properly placed, porcelain fillings may last for up to 15 years or longer!

Dr. Lana Rozenberg and her staff look forward to answering any questions you may have about our porcelain fillings procedure, as well as any of our other dental procedures. Contact us at our New York office at 212.265.7724, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Rozenberg.
