Bonding and White Filling

A Beautiful Practice For All Your Dental Needs

There are various ways to restore damaged teeth. The most common form of treating cavities was silver fillings or amalgams. Silver fillings are an alloy of silver, zinc, tin, mercury, and other metals.
However, advances in dental techniques now offer superior and aesthetic choice of dental material like cosmetic fillings that look more like natural teeth. Cosmetic fillings are light cured composites that can be done in one sitting. There are different types of cosmetic fillings currently available to match the shade of your teeth. The type used will depend on the location of the tooth and the amount of tooth structure that needs to be repaired.
Here are the advantages of using composite fillings over silver / amalgam fillings:
  • Some teeth exhibit minor cracks under large amalgam fillings
  • Teeth can get stained with amalgam fillings and have a grayish appearance
  • Composite fillings actually bond to the tooth structure and thus would prevent further damage to the tooth
  • Composite teeth look just like natural teeth
