Advances in dental materials have resulted in more durable and attractive fillings. Previously dentists filled and sealed cavities exclusively using amalgam (a mixture of silver and mercury). Unfortunately, these restorations can weaken teeth because a large amount of the original tooth is often removed and over time amalgam fillings absorb water, expand and can crack or fracture teeth.
Unlike metal amalgams, only minimal tooth preparation is required to place a tooth-colored filling. This conservative solution allows you to keep more of your natural tooth structure. Tooth-colored fillings also provide support and insulation, which reduces the potential for fractures and sensitivity to hot and cold. These fillings will instantly brighten and improve the appearance of your smile.
