Non Metal Fillings

Tooth colored dental fillings restore and strengthen a tooth with decay or damage.  A tooth color filling is comprised of material that bond directly to the healthy tooth surface allowing more of the healthy tooth structure to remain.

Unlike metal amalgam fillings, tooth colored fills provide added strength and the ability to match the surrounding teeth. Mercury-silver fillings can expand and contract when exposed to temperature changes and may cause weakening of the tooth, possible fractures and recurrent decay. Composite tooth colored fillings can restore and strengthen your smile.
