FILLINGS

When your dentist removes an area of decay from your tooth, the structure of your tooth is restored with a filling material that gives you back the pain-free function of your tooth. In the past, silver-amalgam has been the most commonly used material for fillings because it is easy to shape and place and can last many years with proper care. However, tooth-colored fillings are also now available.

TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

After decay is removed from your teeth, filling material is used to restore the shape of your teeth and to prevent future damage. In the past, silver-amalgam fillings were almost exclusively used by dentists around the world. However, these fillings are easy to see and make your smile look dark. Plus, they contain mercury. Tooth-colored fillings are made from a porcelain-based, highly durable resin that can be shaped to match your natural tooth color and sculpted to the exact shape and size needed. These fillings are almost invisible and last as long as their silver counterparts. Many patients even elect to replace their old silver fillings with tooth-colored fillings.
