What Can Porcelain Fillings Achieve?

General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta

Posted: April 16, 2015

Cavities are obviously a common problem among Edmonton-area patients who visit our dentist for routine check-ups. Cavities aren’t devastating, but they do need to be filled immediately. Porcelain fillings are excellent options.

Traditionally, dentists used mercury fillings to fill cavities. Questions about the safety of mercury fillings have been raised. But while reasonable people can disagree on the answers to those questions, porcelain fillings are superior options, even setting aside health concerns related to mercury.

The biggest advantage of porcelain fillings is inconspicuousness. These fillings are translucent, which means they reflect and absorb light the way your tooth enamel does. There won’t be any indication to those speaking with you that you have dental work.

Porcelain is also stain resistant in a way that mercury fillings are not. Furthermore, mercury fillings can expand and contract with temperature changes, putting a strain on your tooth and increasing the risk of a fracture.

Put simply, porcelain fillings can achieve all of the important cosmetic and dental goals of a filling and they can do so in a pleasantly inconspicuous fashion.

If you live in the Edmonton area and you want to speak to our dentist about porcelain fillings, please call Focus on Smiles at 780-800-3005 or contact us online for a consultation.
