Someone asked me today how to get rid of black fillings. I told them there are a few options. If the existing filling is not very large, a tooth colored composite filling can be used to replace it. If the current filling is more than half the size of the tooth, a porcelain onlay can be used for replacement. When the old filling is even larger, an all porcelain crown can be placed to full restore the tooth to proper form and function. At Laser Dentistry of North Jersey we use the Cerec system to produce the all porcelain onlays and crowns in one visit. There is no impression, no temporary, and no second visit to insert the restoration. Our patients have found it very convenient for their schedules.
