Fillings have long been used as a solution to remove decay within teeth and replace the area with a material that provides strength and structure. For years, amalgam or “silver” fillings were used for this treatment. This option has generally fallen out of practice due to the possible health concerns related with the use of amalgam, as well as the unsightly nature of these silver fillings within teeth. Composite fillings, which are specifically formulated to match the color of your teeth, provide the same result as an amalgam filling without any of the unwanted mercury.
Our dentists are also skilled at removing old amalgam or “silver” fillings and replacing them with composite, tooth colored fillings. This service can transform how patients feel about their teeth, with the composite blending seamlessly with the natural tooth structure. Whether it be for chips, decay, or replacement of silver fillings, composite fillings will provide you with beautiful results and keep you smiling for years to come.
Don’t just take our word for it – sometimes a picture says it all. Our fillings blend perfectly with your tooth’s color, just view some of the example below:
