While Dental Fillings
For decades, the silver-mercury amalgam was the most common filling material used in dental offices, and still is for many practices. While they are an affordable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not fasten well to your teeth, so decay can and does slowly seep back into your tooth. But the main reason many of our patients are switching to white bonded fillings has to do with their appearance. Many people just don't want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer advanced restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can improve the strength of your teeth. These fillings bond so tightly with the healthy part of your tooth there is much less possibility of decay in the future.
