Porcelain is the most biocompatible, hypo-allergenic, non-metallic restorative material of which we are aware at this time. Porcelain restorations are also dramatically less effected by factors that influence longevity of both amalgams and white composite fillings: i.e., restorative technique, filling size, your body chemistry, and your nutritional intake. Porcelain restorations (inlays, onlays, crowns) can last 12-15 years or longer.
We offer lab-processed porcelain but currently do not offer same day processed CAD/CAM restorations as the in house brand of milling machines are far inferior to the lab fabricated ones. We prefer the best quality for our patients and therefore send all our porcelain restorations out to be fabricated by a professional, skilled laboratory technician.
The procedure involves two appointments, and of course we maximize your time in our chair by offering other procedures that might be in your treatment plan.
