Star-quality Oral Care from Our Cosmetic Dentists
When it comes to filling a cavity, the traditional methods often require the use of gold or metal alloys. These fillings can be very visible when talking or smiling, which can lead to embarrassment or self-consciousness. If you have a cavity that needs to be refilled or you need to repair a cavity, porcelain fillings can provide you with a lasting and more attractive option. Nearly invisible, porcelain fillings are almost as strong as your natural tooth enamel and are long-lasting. The porcelain color camouflages perfectly to the color of your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing the filling.
At Bedford Dental Group, we are dedicated to providing porcelain fillings in Beverly Hills so that all of our clients can smile like celebrities.
What Is the Porcelain Filling Process?
At Bedford Dental Group, we have performed countless porcelain fillings and do everything possible to perform the procedures with the comfort of our clients in mind. Porcelain fillings require various dentistry methods and skills in order to ensure that the filling stays in place and adequately covers the cavity. First, the cavity must be removed and the site of the filling is prepared by a skilled Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist from our office. An impression of your cavity will be taken and sent to a lab. The lab will create a porcelain inlay that is cemented into place in the tooth. Because the porcelain inlay is made to resemble the lost tooth structure, it is nearly indistinguishable.
Porcelain Fillings Have a Number of Advantages:
- Aesthetics: Porcelain fillings blend in with your teeth, versus gold or silver fillings
- Strength: These fillings require less removal of your natural tooth than others
- Durability: Porcelain lasts longer than other materials and will not need to be replaced as often
In order to care for your filling after the procedure, we recommend maintaining a proper oral hygiene regimen that includes brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings. We can also have follow up appointments to check for cracked or leaking fillings and can replace any fillings that have become damaged.
Whether we are performing a routine checkup or a more complicated procedure such as full mouth reconstruction or dental implants, our team of highly qualified and trained porcelain implant dentists provide the kind of service and oral care that is hard to beat. We offer complimentary consultations to all of our clients in order to meet with them and discuss the many cosmetic dentistry services available. We are proud to be the preferred dentistry choice for celebrities such as David Beckham, Harry Connick, Jr., and Kim Porter. However, we’ll treat every client like an A-lister and strive to provide premier dental services and gentle-touch dentistry to each individual.
