Get Your Dream Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
Silver fillings have many setbacks. The edges of the silver filling can wear down, become leaky, or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and causes cavities to form. With aging, time and temperature changes, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can separate.
Advantage of Tooth-Colored Restorations
Since the resin/glass used in tooth-colored restorations contains fluoride, this can help prevent decay. The resin bends and forms, behaving much like the original tooth enamel and does not require placement at the cervical margin (gum line), which is healthier and more efficient. The result is a beautiful smile!
