A Closer Look at Dental Fillings
We Use Composite Fillings
Amalgam fillings are silver in color and noticeable, especially among the front teeth. Using composite resin helps restore the appearance of a natural tooth.
Composite resin bonds more easily with a tooth than metal does, which means your dentist will be able to preserve more of your tooth's natural tissue when placing a filling.
Free of Metal
While rare, patients with metal allergies may have an adverse reaction to amalgam. Additionally, amalgam fillings may expand and contract, which could lead to tooth fractures.
