Many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with Tooth-Colored Restorations. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
ADVANTAGES OF TOOTH-COLORED RESTORATIONS
There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. They are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
The resin wears like natural teeth and since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contains fluoride this can help prevent decay.
The result is a beautiful smile!
