Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been decayed, chipped or broken. We provide very highly esthetic tooth-colored fillings for our patients. Fillings done directly in the mouth are called direct fillings. Fillings that are made outside of the mouth, in a laboratory, are called indirect fillings. Indirect fillings may be referred to as inlays or onlays. Inlays and onlays can be made from several different types of materials, including porcelain, gold, metal or composite resin. At Royal Oaks Dentistry, we will help you understand all the options that are available to you and the pros and cons of each of the options.
