Bonded Ceramic Restorations
We highly recommend bonded ceramic as the best overall choice for most dental restorations.
What are bonded ceramics?
Bonded ceramics are porcelain and porcelain-like materials which will last a lifetime. They are cemented to tooth structure using modern bonding technology, producing a restored tooth which can easily last a lifetime. Other filling materials such as silver and white composite (which are basically hard plastic) are short term, generally lasting 6-12 years. Constant replacement of these fillings is damaging to tooth structure. Bonded ceramics, which are beautiful and do not stain, are the most practical and cost effective long term restorations.
Interested?Give our Watertown office a call with any questions or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Strokowski, Dr. Biebuyck or Dr. Guo at Greater Boston Dental Phone Number 617-924-7301. You can also book online.
COSTS: A bonded ceramic restoration costs between $600-$800 depending on its size. A corresponding silver or white plastic filling costs $200-$350. Insurance generally covers 50% of the costs. We will be happy to estimate insurance coverage and provide an exact cost for any bonded ceramic restorations.
