As part of our commitment to the overall health of our patients we are a mercury-free practice – we DO NOT use filling materials that include mixed metals or mercury. A tooth colored filling material is a natural looking material made from ceramic or glass and plastic resin aka composite. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems. Tooth colored fillings are an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings popular in past.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive bonding layer that is placed on the tooth. After the natural colored resin has been applied an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then meticulously polished and shaped to give you a fresh, new smile.
