Dental Inlays, Onlays & Tooth-Colored Fillings

Palm Beach Gardens Restorative Dental Care

Cavities. Cavities are one of the most common oral health concerns, and they require restorative dental care attention if you’re going to have a healthy smile. For the longest time, the only options for restorative treatment of cavities were metal amalgam fillings, inlays, or onlays. Luckily, however, we offer metal free and mercury free fillings, inlays, and onlays at our Palm Beach Gardens dental office. Dr. William Ma is vastly interested in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and making sure that your fillings, inlays, and onlays not only repair the damage done by cavities but also make your smile look naturally beautiful is something he takes very seriously. Just because your smile’s been damaged doesn’t mean that you have to suffer with unattractive dental restorations; Dr. Ma provides tooth-colored fillings and porcelain inlays and onlays.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Over the last few years, patients have been pleased by the development of tooth-colored fillings material that has eliminated the need for dark metal amalgam fillings. Composite resin blends beautifully with your tooth for a seamless cavity repair, but tooth-colored fillings are also an attractive option because they’re a healthier choice. Did you know that there are small amounts of mercury in amalgam fillings? This mercury hasn’t been shown to be conclusively damaging , but why risk it when mercury free tooth-colored fillings are available? Tooth-colored fillings from Dr. William Ma in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida also don’t expand and contract in response to temperature changes the way that metal fillings do, which means they don’t break their seal and leak.

Porcelain Inlays & Onlays

Do you have a big filling that needs to be replaced? It's possible that we can repair the problem with an inlay or onlay. Inlays and onlays are porcelain dental restorations that can sometimes remove the need for a full crown, offering a more conservative restorative dental care option. Not every situation is right for an inlay or onlay, but Palm Beach Gardens dentist Dr. William Ma will determine which treatment will work best for your smile. Inlays and onlays are handcrafted for you in a dental lab and offer a solution when too much tooth is damaged to be helped by a filling but you wish to avoid a crown.
