Cosmetic (White) Fillings
Also, referred to as “metal free” or “holistic” dentistry, tooth-colored fillings are safer and more aesthetically pleasing than the mercury-based, amalgam fillings of the past. Our dentists can treat cavities, tooth decay, and other damage with fillings made of a white, resin material that blends with the color of your tooth. The fillings are also known for long-lasting results and their ability to strengthen teeth and make them more resistant to fractures. Plus, more of the existing tooth structure can be preserved because of the way the resin material bonds to the tooth, ultimately extending its longevity How long any filling will last will depend on where it is in your mouth and how your teeth meet together, but with proper care white fillings should last you many years.
