Composite Resin Fillings are made from a natural looking synthetic material, Silver fillings have been used for decades.More often than not these fillings need to be replaced.

  • Amalgam oxidizes and corrodes over time through normal wear and the foods we eat
  • Oxidizing amalgam can expand causing fractures within the tooth structure
  • Old amalgam often exhibits broken margins which allow bacteria to penetrate into the tooth structure
  • Unattractive silver fillings

Composite resin restorations can be used to replace amalgam fillings, with proper care these fillings will last many years. A stronger & superior option is the placement of a CEREC porcelain restoration.


CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) is a dental restoration system that allows us to produce an indirect ceramic dental restoration using a CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacture) process. With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single appointment. Crowns, Veneers, Onlays and Inlays can be made using this process.

  • Porcelain is the best esthetic substitute for natural tooth enamel
  • Excellent colour match to natural tooth enamel
  • Closest to natural Enamel of any restorative substance available (including Lab-fabricated porcelain inlays)
  • Expands and contracts just like enamel when exposed to hot and cold, resulting in less sensitivity
  • CEREC porcelain is more resistant to wear compared to resin, wears at about the same rate as a natural tooth structure
  • Extremely durable and will not chip or break under normal chewing forces
  • A minimum amount of tooth structure is removed during preparation procedure
  • The strongest tooth-coloured, non-mercury material available
  • CEREC is the ONLY single appointment porcelain procedure available
  • No messy impressions needed
  • Exceptional integration with tooth structure: biocompatible, bonds to tooth providing 103% of strength of natural tooth enamel
  • Provides a perfect seal between tooth and filling, therefore minimizing chance of recurrent decay
  • Strengthens tooth, thus less chance of tooth fracture and the possible need of crowns in the future
