Filling cavities is routine dental care. Chances are pretty good that if you’ve been seeing a dentist since you were a kid, that you have acquired a few fillings. Most of them are probably made of amalgam. You’ll know because you can see the dark gray or silver colored spot on your tooth, and so can everyone else. No one will be fooled by your smile because when you laugh or open your mouth, they’ll be able to see those dark fillings standing out against the white of your teeth. There’s no way to hide big, amalgam fillings.
Dentists have used amalgam, a mixture of metals, for years because the filling itself is so strong and lasting. Now, there is a new filling material being utilized in offices, including our own, that makes fillings an aesthetic part of your smile. We call it composite filling material, and it is revolutionizing the way people get dental fillings, and the confidence they feel when they smile!
