Tooth-colored fillings, offer a non-invasive way to improve your smile. A tooth-colored filling is a mixture of microscopic ceramic and glass particles dispersed in a plastic resin that can be bonded to teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. The fact that the resin is bonded means a seal is formed to reduce the chance of leakage, which is common with silver fillings. For years, silver-mercury was the primary material used by dentists to fill cavities. Today, tooth-colored restorations are superior, both in appearance and in durability. You deserve only the best, which is why our dentists offer tooth-colored restorations. In fact, many patients choose to replace their old silver fillings with tooth-colored fillings.
