At Moorpark Smiles we love to do Cosmetic Dentistry. One of the best things we can do for your teeth is replace old amalgams which expand over time and crack teeth, stain teeth due to their mercury and silver content, and leak from the day they are placed.
If they are small enough, we offer composite resin fillings which we can exactly match to your tooth color and make an invisible restoration like the ones you see above.
If the area where the filling is too large for a filling we can make an inlay or an onlay to restore ideal function and appearance to the tooth without the need for a full coverage crown or cap.
What to Expect
We usually will administer anesthetic and remove the decay and any old restorations. If the tooth is stained we may opaque out the stain, and then place a tooth colored filling, or if too large an area we will take a mould of the tooth and send it to the lab for fabrication of a tooth colored inlay or onlay. The inlays and onlays are incredibly strong, and once cemented in place have the potential to last a lifetime.
