Tooth Colored Fillings
If you need to have a cavity filled, or if you would like an alternative to conspicuous metal (amalgam) fillings, white fillings may be just the treatment you’ve been looking for. The tooth-colored material used in white fillings blends flawlessly with the tooth, so you can speak and laugh without having to worry about revealing a mouth full of fillings.

Benefits of Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings have many health and aesthetic benefits. Unlike metal fillings, they do not contain any mercury, which makes them much safer than metal fillings. They also adhere more tenaciously to the tooth than metal fillings, which reduces the likelihood of return visits to have the filling repaired or replaced. The ceramic material does not stretch or shift, which eliminates or minimizes tooth sensitivity. Finally, these fillings provide a phenomenal aesthetic result.
