If you feel self-conscious smiling broadly or laughing out loud, because you have dark, unattractive old fillings, then we have a simple painless solution for you. Today, porcelain inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver or composite fillings.
Silver amalgam fillings make teeth appear gray, and old composite bonding tends to chip and discolor over time.
Inlays are fillings that are made by a highly trained dental technician in either porcelain or "artglass."
Inlays are extremely strong and long lasting, and they restore and protect the tooth against further fracture.
Porcelain and artglass materials have been used for years in the fabrication of crown and bridgework, providing natural tooth color and translucency.
Porcelain and artglass inlays like those you see at the bottom of this page match your own tooth color, and are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Almost any silver or gold filling can be replaced with a beautiful porcelain or artglass inlay. If you don't want anyone to see fillings in your mouth, then inlays are an esthetic and enduring alternative!
