What are Metal-Free Fillings?
Discover the natural-looking and tooth conserving alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are safer, more substantial, attractive, and enduring alternatives to amalgam or silver fillings. These new tooth-colored fillings bond directly to the tooth, providing strength, and can even be custom-colored to match your teeth to help give you the most natural-looking smile possible.
Amalgam fillings expand and contract when exposed to temperature changes, weakening the tooth wall, leading to fractures, which also allows bacteria to enter and cause decay. Tooth-colored fillings provide the strength needed for a longer-lasting and more aesthetically pleasing alternative for our patients. Call our office today for more information on composite fillings.
