Porcelain Restorations at Vancouver’s Arbutus North Dental Centre Repair Tooth Decay and Improve your Oral Health!
If left untreated, tooth decay can wreak havoc by causing cavities and exposing teeth to harmful bacteria. Over time, this can lead to a variety of very serious dental and overall health problems. Plus, it can damage your overall appearance, your confidence levels, your self esteem, and ultimately, your quality of life. Put it all together, and it means that making sure your cavities are taken care of properly and swiftly is a very smart idea! At Arbutus North Dental Centre, our terrific staff can use porcelain restorations to stop tooth decay in its tracks, and restore any affected tooth to its original shape and function.
Porcelain restorations are customized for the exact shape of your teeth. As such, unlike metal or composite fillings, porcelain restorations have to be created in a lab. However, the short wait is well worth it, because porcelain restorations are stronger and last longer than other kinds of fillings – up to 30 years! In fact, your tooth will be even stronger with the filling than before, which can not only help improve bite and digestion, but prevent future “wear and tear,” which could require additional procedures, like crowns or inlays/onlays.
Getting your custom-fit “stronger than nature itself” porcelain restorations is easy and comfortable, and requires just two visits to our relaxing Vancouver dental clinic. On your first visit, your Arbutus North dentist will take an impression of your tooth, which will be sent to the lab. We’ll also temporarily fill your cavity, so that no additional decay will take place while your filling is being created. On your second visit, we’ll replace the temporary filling with a permanent one, and then cement the customized porcelain restoration to your tooth.
