If your teeth are filled with dark, gray metal fillings, you've got more to worry about than your appearance. Metal amalgams can damage teeth. Temperature sensitive, amalgams expand with heat and contract with cold. This movement weakens the tooth wall, leading to fractures and also allows bacteria to enter and cause decay. They contain mercury that may have long-term health effects. Tooth-colored composite fillings are a safer, stronger, more attractive and more enduring alternative to metal. They conservatively restore your teeth to strength and your smile to beauty.
Today's modern white filling materials strengthen teeth unlike the mercury amalgam fillings of years past. These new materials restore teeth to their original look, feel, and beauty. Laugh again with confidence.
