At our cosmetic dentistry practice, we use tooth-colored fillings to restore our patients’ smiles. These composite resin fillings have many advantages over the old standard metal amalgam fillings.
- They blend with the natural color of your teeth. Unlike the silver fillings that dentists used previously, tooth-colored fillings are selected to match with your natural teeth so they won’t stand out. They will blend naturally into your smile.
- They are durable. Composite fillings are resistant to fracture for small and mid-size restorations that have to withstand chewing forces.
- They spare your tooth. Much less of your natural tooth needs to be removed for the placement of composite fillings.
- They are mercury free. Many patients choose to have their amalgam fillings replaced with composite fillings because the older silver fillings contain small amounts of mercury, and patients do not want to risk mercury toxicity.
