Tooth-Colored Fillings

An Invisible Alternative to Metal Fillings

There are several options or types of dental fillings. In the past, most dentists used silver or gold to make fillings. Silver is a stable compound made with mercury, silver and traces of other metals. Aside from being unattractive, there have been concerns about dental fillings containing mercury affecting a patient’s health. Though there has not been conclusive proof that silver fillings are harmful, many people prefer non-metal fillings.

At Eastwood Dental Office, we offer tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin. Composite resin fillings are made of a plastic material. The resin color is custom matched to the patient’s own tooth color. This provides the patient with a more natural look and feel, as well as an alternative to metal fillings.
There are several advantages of composite resin fillings. First, they require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure for placement. Second, they are a very strong material. Third, they blend in beautifully with your surrounding teeth, so no one will even know you have a tooth colored filling!

If you have a cavity, you now have an alternative to metal fillings. Your teeth will look and feel great! Call us today to make an appointment with Dr. Joan Laura at (315) 849-9055 , or use our online form .
