Which would you rather have?
- A large filling, placed in a warm, dark, moist environment
- A filling milled to perfection out of one piece by a 3D milling unit
The decision should be easy.
Fillings (also known as a composite resin) that are milled are a less expensive alternative to porcelain restorations.
Milled fillings provide additional strength, and the accuracy of the marginal seal is far superior. It’s a longer-lasting alternative for large fillings.
To boot, there are no sensitivity or bite issues after, either.
