Metal vs Composite/ Porcelain: Think long term!

In the past, metal fillings have been the only option available when you needed a crown. Even now, you may encounter that many places offer amalgam fillings, or commonly known as metal fillings. The problem with this is that you would be left with a shiny, inauthentic looking tooth blatantly shining its existence to your friends, family and coworkers!
Rest assured, we are here to offer you an aesthetic, natural material- porcelain/ composite!

These porcelain/ composite materials are tooth-coloured and durable. It will offer you a natural smile that you couldn’t fully have with your metal fillings!
Here at ABC Dental, we can replace your existing metal fillings with this appealing option in just one single visit.

But you might ask, “Why porcelain or composite if they have the same function as a metal filling?”. The benefits of composite fillings aren’t just ‘better aesthetics!’.

The benefits of replacing metal fillings are:
No Gum Line Discolouration: gum line discolouration is a common allergic reaction caused by metal fillings. With composite or porcelain, you won’t have to suffer these risks.
No Leakages: Metal fillings can deteriorate over time. In contrast, these tooth-colured fillings won’t break down, meaning you won’t have to return to the dentist for additional repairs.

Now, the Why at ABC Dental?

At ABC Dental, we offer a number of benefits when it comes to replacing metal fillings.

Treating RCT - What I need to know when I'm in pain?

Firstly, we need to detect if it is root canal treatment that you require. Sometimes, it's just that you were brushing too hard and you just need to brush softly around the gums. If the pain is throbbing and it's keeping you awake in the night. Please TAKE PAIN KILLERS don't try to win the pain cause trust us. You will loose. Call us immediately we are open all 7 days (02) 8383 1400 and book an appointment with our dentists. Root Canal is a very common procedure that dentists treat almost every day of the week. Sometimes even three times a day. For patients, it is painful and expensive, and Abc Dental hears you. At ABC Dental, we seek to turn even this intensive dental procedure into one that promotes relaxation and comfort while remaining cost-effective.

Our preventive approach to care is designed to proactively monitor decay during checkups every 6 months. By doing so, we can prevent tooth decay from reaching the roots to preserve your smile. If you find yourself in a situation where decay has reached the nerves of a tooth, there’s no need to worry. Instead, you can have peace of mind turning to ABC Dental and our advanced root canal therapy techniques.

The full root canal treatment comes in 3 stages.

1st Appointment Usually includes two stages.

Stage 1: Expiration of the Nerve
Stage 2: Expiration of the Nerve and Obturation - filling the tooth with Medication and Temporary Cap until the root is fully cleaned from bacteria and infection.

2nd Appointment Usually includes Stage 3 Prep for crown
By this stage, you would have completely be out of pain. But don't be fooled! It is still very prone to developing a new infection that can cause more pain than the last time. At this appointment, you will need to prep the tooth to cap it with a crown. But until the crown is made you will be provided with a temporary crown. You must come back to the crown insert. At Abc Dental we offer CEREC same day crowns that may not require you to come back for a third appointment. More on this in the next blog.

As this is a very common treatment it is available from all our locations.
We are only in convenient shopping centre locations Bondi Junction, Macquarie Centre, Sydney, Miranda, Chatswood, Green Hills (East Maitland) and Warringah Mall. Call (02) 8383 1400 to make an appointment/ discuss if you can be suitable for a Complete Dental Solution at Abc Dental.
