In the not so distant past, cavities were once filled with lustrous, silver amalgam material. However, advancements in the general dentistry industry have developed an alternative solution to provide patients with fillings that more closely resemble a tooth’s natural pigment. While metal fillings have been proven to be cost-effective, long-lasting, and easy to apply, composite fillings are even stronger, more aesthetically pleasing, and far less apparent!
With a typical lifespan of up to 8 years, composite fillings are an ideal alternative to old-fashioned metal fillings. A metal-free filling can also provide extra support due to the material’s ability to bond directly to the tooth. Whether you’re looking to replace old metal fillings or are in need of a new filling, we’re proud to offer our patients composite fillings for a healthy, naturally beautiful looking smile!
