We Offer the Most Effective And Longest Lasting Treatments For Tooth Decay
Our office mostly uses white as they are attractive and very durable. With the advancements in technology, they have become a solid alternative to silver (amalgam). They are made of high strength composite resin that can easily be matched to the surrounding tooth coloration. White fillings are aesthetically pleasing, as such are primarily used in the front teeth. Not only are they a great option for front teeth, but are now being used for back teeth, as they can withstand the chewing pressure!
Silver (amalgam) Fillings
White composite resin is used almost exclusively by our office. In certain circumstances, silver is required. With the advancement in today’s technology, silver can now be safely replaced with tooth-colored restorations. However, silver can be problematic, as it is common for the edges of the silver to wear and break. Obviously, this is not ideal because cavities can start as the tooth is not protected. Further, the metal will expand/contract over time which can split. In addition, the mercury in the silver fillings corrode and leak, causing teeth gum staining.
White Porcelain or Resin inlay / onlay is used when the cavity is too big for a filling, but isn’t so big that a crown is required. Onlays (also known as overlays) will overlay one or more cusps in order to protect and strengthen the tooth. An inlay is a used within the cusp tips of the tooth.
