Ceramic dental fillings, also known as inlays or onlays, are highly durable restorations. They can be used to restore heavily broken-down teeth that would traditionally require dental crowns. They are less expensive and more conservative than dental crowns, and therefore present an excellent alternative.
Ceramic dental fillings offer a number of advantages over plastic fillings (composite resin) and traditional metallic fillings (amalgam). Apart from being highly aesthetic, they are also strong and can last significantly longer than conventional fillings. With ceramic fillings, dentists are able to achieve a better colour match to your natural teeth for optimal aesthetic results.
If dental decay or dental cavities are allowed to progress, they will cause further tooth destruction without necessarily causing pain.
If you suspect or know you have dental cavities, having your teeth assessed and treated with ceramic tooth fillings now could stop further decay and prevent more serious developments such as root canal infection and tooth loss.
