Do you have old amalgam fillings that have made your teeth look darker over time? We can rejuvenate your smile by replacing them with composite fillings that won’t cause staining or “shadow.”
The days of the old amalgam, metallic fillings are gone. Tooth colored (composite) fillings are now the preferred method of filling cavities.
A composite filling has other benefits over amalgam:
- More of your tooth structure is preserved as the composite is bonded in
- They are made with a strong composite resin that looks more like your natural tooth
- Superior color matching to the surface of the tooth
- Tooth-colored composites are also less likely to come loose and cause a return trip to the dentist.
