Tooth Colored Dental Fillings & Bonding
Bonded Tooth Colored Composite fillings are cosmetic and healthy for teeth. These photos are of our dental patients.
Bonded composite fillings or tooth-colored fillings can be beautiful as you can see in the above pictures. We also use this material in the back teeth such as when old silver fillings are removed because of leakage. This white filling material can conform to any shape and forms a very strong bond to the tooth.
We Do Not Use Silver Amalgam Fillings
We are a mercury-free dental practice and do not use any amalgam for our fillings. We believe that by using bonded tooth colored fillings, we are providing the best restoration for the tooth. Dental amalgam is typically 50% mercury by weight and I prefer not to expose anyone to that. When removing amalgam, we prefer to use an evacuation system called an isolite which suctions on all sides of the tooth to capture any amalgam and or its aerosolized vapor.
Notice that the old silver filling cause cracks in the teeth and leak. This leads to broken teeth, cavities, and root canals.
