Cerec fillings

Cerec all ceramic white fillingsare therestorations of choice for most medium to large fillings.

The advantages that these fillings have over the alternatives are:

  • They are much more natural looking than amalgam fillings.
  • They bond to the tooth and return the tooth to its natural strength (unlike amalgam).
  • This means that teeth are less likely to break later, and less likely to need crowns.
  • They last longer and are less likely to get recurrent decay than other white fillings made directly (ie in the mouth) from composite material.
  • They can be completed in one visit without the need for impressions unlike other porcelain or indirect composite fillings.
  • They have phisical characteristics similarto natural teeth, and so are less likely to damage adjacent teeth through wear over a long time.

The alternatives to to Cerec white fillings.

For white fillings, the most commonly used alternative white filling is to use a composite material. Composite fillings placed directly in the mouth are more likely to break and become sensitive or develop recurrant decay, especially if it is deep .However, they are a usefull alternative if the filling is small. Indirectcomposite fillings (i.e made in the laboratory) overcomes these problems but involves impressions so that the lab can make your filling, and a second appt to fit it.
