White Fillings

Wouldn't you rather have white fillings? With today's technology, white fillings (composites and ceramic inlays) can easily withstand the stress required to serve as a filling in a back tooth. Our patients now overwhelmingly prefer these fillings because of the way they look and feel, and because they strengthen weak teeth. There is some concern about the safety of mercury (silver/black) fillings, although the evidence is not substantial. We offer a replacement of the fillings with mercury-free white fillings, which are also more pleasing to the eye.

A tooth looks more natural and beautiful after removing the amalgam and replacing it with a bonded white filling. Besides looking better, this tooth is now more resistant to fracture.
