Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If your teeth are filled with dark metal amalgam fillings, they may appear discolored, causing you to look older. Of the most concern, however, is the fact that metal fillings can also damage teeth. Amalgams expand with heat and contract with cold. This movement weakens the tooth wall, leading to fractures and allowing bacteria to enter and cause decay. Amalgam fillings also contain mercury that may have negative 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. At 32nd Street Dental, we can use usually use composite fillings for new damage and to replace your old fillings for a better-looking, healthier smile.
