For a long time, the silver-mercury amalgam was the basic material used in dental practices, and many practices still employ metal fillings. While they do work as expected, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not attach well to teeth, so decay will leak into the tooth sooner or later. But the primary reason many of our patients are choosing the white fillings is because they look so much better. Many people just don’t want a noticeable dark filling in their teeth. We offer modern restorations that are a natural white, contain no metal, and can strengthen your teeth. They also bond tightly with the healthy tooth structure so there is much less chance of future decay.
