Dr. Barsky helps you protect your health and your investment. The new natural porcelain doesn't retract or expand as a result of hot or cold temperatures, as seen in older metal fillings. When older fillings shrink and enlarge because of temperatures, they often need to be replaced because of many micro fractures undermining the strength of the tooth. When this happens, more of the natural tooth area needs to be removed, because any areas that have become fractured due to the older fillings can cause the tooth to break.
Dr. Barsky and his qualified team are able to replace these older fillings with stronger, more durable, more natural-looking options. With many amenities available to you, you can feel comfortable and relaxed with your visit.

INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Inlays and onlays made from beautiful, naturally blending materials bring form and function together. Boost your health and your self-confidence, with this advanced cosmetic dentistry technique.Inlays and onlays are a hybrid between a crown and a filling. The MIAMI Institute uses the premier dental laboratory in Florida to customize your needs, ensuring durability, strength and functionality. They are created to the specifications of Dr. Barsky, for the optimal color, shape and size. Inlays and onlays are also a great option to protect your tooth for the long-term. A regular filling may only last a few years before being worn down. Inlays and onlays can be much more durable and may last 10 or 15 years with good care. The difference between inlays and onlays, and regular fillings, are that they can restore a larger area of decay, while still preserving your natural tooth.
Porcelain Crowns are restorations placed on teeth that require complete coverage either due to weakening of the tooth or due to complete structural breakdown. Crowns can be made entirely of porcelain (ceramic) or of a combination of metal and porcelain. All-porcelain crowns are usually made for the teeth that are most visible when you smile. Metal-porcelain crowns are usually made for posterior, or teeth toward the rear of your mouth On the first visit, we'll prepare the tooth to receive a crown, take an impression, then a temporary crown is placed on the prepared tooth to protect it while the permanent crown is being fabricated. The temporary crown is made of a plastic material and is inserted on the tooth with a temporary cement. On the second visit, we will try-in the final permanent crown and then cement it to the tooth. The entire procedure is done over three appointments.
