A recent new trend in the dental industry is to only use the modern day white porcelain fillings, instead of the old metal silver amalgam. Our staff uses this type of filling exclusively because it is a superior product compared to the metal alloy (comprised of silver and mercury). This new White Porcelain Filling is strong enough to use on molars and is also made with fluoride mineral to prevent further decay.
Replacement with white or tooth colored composite or porcelain materials leaves your tooth in much better physical shape. The “bond” created between tooth and dental materials is stronger than actual tooth structure. The other big plus is the cosmetic benefits of newer modern materials…your teeth look great and you smile wider!
No more dark fillings to catch people’s eye when you laugh or sing at the top of your lungs, all for a modest additional cost.
