Porcelain Restorations

Along with general, preventative and restorative dentistry services, Bernard Colonna DDS, Kevin Maloney DMD and the team at Amedeo and Colonna, LTD. are pleased to offer cosmetic dentistry services like porcelain restorations. 

This modern, innovative dental solution both restores common oral health problems like cavities and keeps your smile looking natural and shiny.

What are Porcelain Restorations?

In the past, the most common solutions for dental problems like cavities was metal amalgam. While strong enough to sustain pressure and force from biting over a long period of time, the metal was visible in smiles and often stuck out alongside natural teeth.

Now, porcelain restorations are a virtually unnoticable solution that blends in with the natural color and shape of your teeth. Our team can shape porcelain to meet your dental health needs, and match the restoration exactly to your mouth.

Porcelain is also very strong, like metal amalgam fillings. Because of this, it is durable and available for use on both the most noticeable parts of your teeth and back molars that handle the most pressure and use from your bite.

What are Porcelain Restorations Used to Treat?

Not only are porcelain restorations often preferred by patients for their aesthetic benefits, they also are highly versatile for treating a variety of restorative dental needs. This includes services such as:

  • Dental fillings to fix a dental cavity
  • Inlays and onlays for restoring the inside of teeth and the chewing surface
  • Porcelain veneers, which attach to the front of your teeth and give you a shining, bright smile
  • Dental crowns that fit specifically over the surface of a damaged tooth
  • Porcelain bridges for filling in gaps left by missing or misaligned teeth

Why Should I Get Porcelain Restorations?

Whether you are looking to improve your smile or repair a damaged tooth, porcelain is an excellent option. It offers the durability, strength and versatility of metal amalgam with the discrete and natural appearance of your existing teeth.

At Amedeo and Colonna, LTD., we use this solution most often for restoring broken, missing, misshapen, decayed or weakened teeth. Even if you simply want to change the way one of your teeth looks, we can use porcelain to meet your cosmetic goals.

What Happens While Getting a Porcelain Restoration?

We will start your porcelain restoration process with a consultation and exam to see the extent of your dental health needs and goals. For example, you may have several damaged teeth requiring a full crown, or you may just want to brighten your smile with the help of veneers. 

During this examination, we will use our in-office technology to get a better view of the inside of your mouth and to visualize potential solutions. We will use this technology later on too when building your specific restoration.

From here, Bernard Colonna DDS, Kevin Maloney DMD and our team will create a treatment plan and timeline for placing your restoration. This will include time to match the size, shape and color of your restoration to your unaffected teeth for optimal aesthetics.
