Cavity Relief is On the Way
Cavities are never fun. They’re frustrating, painful, and time-consuming to deal with.
At Trembath Dentistry, we’re here to help. We use mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings that are more aesthetically appealing and healthier for your overall mouth. By getting a filling, you will be able to chew comfortably again and restore the health of your tooth.
We have options for both inlays and onlays. Onlays and inlays are a durable covering piece that covers the exterior of your tooth and is bonded to the tooth via cement. They are used to add strength to the tooth if you have a damaged cusp.
Disadvantages of Silver Fillings
Not only do silver fillings look unnatural against the rest of your other teeth, but silver fillings have other disadvantages as well. They include:
- Consist of 50% mercury
- Erode over time
- Stain easily
- Break your natural tooth/teeth
Advantages of Onlays
So, what are your other options if silver fillings are a poor decision? As your trusted neighborhood dentist, we suggest onlays! There are many advantages of onlays including that they:
- Are a better fit
- Keep the tooth intact
- Are tooth-colored
- Use a resin that wears like a tooth
