We are a mercury-free practice. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that silver amalgam fillings will eventually lose the seal around their edge, allowing decay-causing agents to get underneath the filling and damage the tooth further.
Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with Tooth-Colored Restorations.
Composites, often referred to as tooth colored fillings, are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and are very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
A composite filling is used to repair a tooth that has suffered from minimal damage from decay, wear related to grinding or acid erosion, cracks, fractures, or has a slight structural cosmetic defect.
In just one appointment, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed, cleaned and filled.
