Broken, worn, cracked, discolored and unsightly silver Fillings

Since the 19th century, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore teeth that are broken or decayed. The only other alternative has been gold and that is simply too expensive for most people. Now there is a better way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings.

The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix. The doctor bonds the material to the tooth with a high-intensity light. This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.

Once completed, the tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than a normal tooth because of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth. Composite Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings.
