Porcelain Fillings

What Is Porcelain Fillings?

Bone porcelain fillings, also known as ceramic or porcelain fillings, are a type of dental filling material that is made of a mixture of porcelain particles and a resin bonding agent. These fillings are designed to be tooth-colored and blend in with the natural color of the teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal fillings.

Bone porcelain fillings are also known for their durability and resistance to staining. They are typically used to restore small to medium-sized cavities in the front or back teeth, and can also be used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of chipped or misshapen teeth.
