Types of Dental Fillings

Do you have tooth damage or weakened teeth? Maybe you have an old dental filling that you have lost? Have your existing dental fillings broken?

Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun & Associates at Dental Spa provide dental fillings to make your smile look its best. Modern, professional dental fillings are an excellent option for patients. These dental fillings blend in to existing teeth for a more natural look than the traditional dental fillings of the past.

Common Types of Professional Dental Fillings

There are two types of professional dental fillings that are available for patients at Dental Spa. You can also learn more about your dental filling options here on our website.

Resin Dental Fillings

Resin dental fillings are best for teeth with decay or damage that may be more minor than other severe cases. White fillings matched to resin dental fillings are nearly identical to existing teeth. The biocompatible resin that make up these fillings are resistant to stains and decay. The resin is also durable for long wear. Resin dental fillings may not be as permanent as other fillings, but they protect teeth from damage, further staining, and everyday wear and tear.

Porcelain Dental Fillings

Also known as dental inlays or dental onlays, porcelain dental fillings provide patients with fillings that restore their smiles. Porcelain dental filling options are more permanent and are meant for patients with significant tooth decay or damage. For this type of filling, impressions of the tooth or teeth that require fillings are made. A model for the inlay or onlay is created from these impressions. With the proper care, porcelain dental fillings can last patients a long time. Like resin dental fillings, porcelain dental fillings protect teeth and give patients whiter and brighter teeth.

Old, Lost or Broken Dental Fillings

Uncomfortable and irritating metal fillings are a thing of the past. Modern fillings are made for lasting comfort and are shaped to perfectly fit patient’s teeth. Fillings made out of silver and mercury can be harmful and irritating, but are easily replacable by modern dental filling options. If you have lost or broken dental fillings, please contact Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun & Associates as soon as possible for emergency treatment.
