Amalgam fillings, also commonly known as “silver” fillings, start to leak and break down over time. It is important to monitor these closely before the old silver fillings cause bigger harm to your teeth. Our patient presented with significant decay and fracture around this molar tooth with a large silver filling. Using our CEREC same-day crown technology, Dr. Cho was able to restore this tooth with a life-like porcelain crown in less than 2 hours. CEREC technology allows us to make beautiful final restorations without the need of messy impression materials and 2 weeks-long temporary phase!
