Importance of Porcelain Fillings
If ignored, tooth decay can spread beyond tooth enamel and into the sensitive portions of the teeth. If decay reaches the pulp, root canal therapy/treatment or extraction may be the only options. This is why your dentists in Lara aim to fill your cavities before they get worse.
During the Porcelain fillings procedure your dentist will remove the decayed portions of your tooth and fill the area with durable porcelain. This long lasting material can be moulded to the tooths normal shape so that it can look and function correctly.
Benefits of porcelain fillings:
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Chemically stable
Porcelain Fillings Procedure :
Before filling, our Dazzling Smiles dentists will administer anaesthesia to numb your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues to avoid pain and discomfort during the procedure. Next, the decay will be removed and replaced with a filling material.
When finished, your mouth will remain partially numb for a few hours. There are no significant risks linked with porcelain fillings, but be sure to keep our contact details handy in case you have any concerns.
