As an alternative to the traditional almalgam filling, we offer white composite fillings. These mercury-free fillings have many advantages. The bonding technology for composite fillings actually bonds the material directly to the tooth. This process strengthens the overall tooth structure, making them more resistant to cracking or fracture.
These fillings are very natural-looking, as you can see in the image shown to the right. White composite fillings are beautiful and make your teeth stronger.
Pictured to the right is an image of an almalgam filling.
In addition, composite fillings, when placed correctly, have less post-operative sensitivity.
Over time when almalgam fillings begin to corrode they turn black. If you have silver fillings that have begun to crack or even leak, we recommend that you have them replaced.
