Replacing Silver Fillings with a Tooth-Colored Restoration Done in a Laboratory.

You can have your silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored restorations (Onlays). This process requires two appointments.

Your First Appointment:

  • The old filling is removed and any additional decay
  • An impression is made of your teeth. A model of your teeth is made and sent to the lab
  • A temporary onlay is placed on the tooth

At The Lab:

  • A resin is carefully placed into the model of your teeth. It is then designed to look like your natural tooth.

Your Second Appointment

  • The temporary Onlay is removed
  • A conditioning gel is placed on your tooth to prepare it for the new Onlay
  • Bonding cement is placed on the tooth and a high intensity light bonds the resin to the tooth
  • The tooth is then polished

Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!
