Are You Looking for Alternative Filling Materials?
The silver-mercury amalgam was used in dental practices for years, and some practices still use it. Although they restore a tooth to full functionality, they have shortcomings. Many people do not like the appearance of the dark metal that contrasts with tooth color. It can be very visible and not aesthetically pleasing. Metallic fillings do not bond tightly to teeth, risking the chance of decay setting in. We use only the latest composite resin fillings that adhere very closely to tooth structure to reduce the chance of decay. They can match the natural tooth color, so they are very unnoticeable. There are no metals in this type of filling, and they actually add strength to the tooth.
