Tooth Colored Restorations
It has been found that old silver fillings darken the teeth, and act like a wedge in a tooth, often leading to tooth fractures.
Our recommendation is when the old silver filling needs to be replaced, it is a good time to replace it with a white composite restoration. The difference between an arch with silver fillings and an arch with white bonded filling replacements is remarkable! Your smile will immediately brighten up with the gray silver fillings being removed.
In this photograph the back two teeth used to be filled with dark silver-mercury fillings and they were replaced with these beautiful bonded restorations.
