No Metal in Our FillingsMany patients are familiar with amalgam fillings, comprised mainly of silver-mercury metals. This has been the common filling material used by dentists for decades. As metal does not bond tightly to tooth structure, they don't last as needed. Eventually, they can loosen and allow decay to set in. Patients also don't like how noticeable they are, and how they detract from an attractive smile.
We use only modern, composite resin fillings. They bond very tightly to tooth structure, greatly reducing the occurrence of decay setting in. They are made to match the shade of a tooth and go unnoticed. This makes for an aesthetically pleasing enhancement of your smile.
