Your Boston Dentist Choice for Tooth Colored Fillings
Dental fillings to repair decayed or broken teeth are made from “composite”, synthetic resins. At Dental Health and Wellness Boston, we have not placed amalgam fillings in our office for over a decade. Tooth colored fillings are a safe, attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings and have several additional advantages over the older silver, mercury-containing option:
- Life-like aesthetic qualities
- Preservation of more natural tooth structure
- Optimal bio-compatibility
- Minimal risk of allergic reaction
- No development of metal sensitivity or “galvanic action”
- Mercury-free and metal-free
- Bond to tooth structure
Composite Resin Fillings
Composite resin fillings strengthen your teeth as the material bonds directly to the tooth structure, holding it together. The bond at the tooth-filling interface creates a seal that resists micro-leakage, inhibiting recurrent decay that forms when food and bacteria can get in at the margins of a filling.
A More Attractive Smile with Natural-Looking Fillings
We will match the composite resin with your tooth’s natural color to create your tooth-colored filling. The result of choosing tooth colored fillings is that you get a cavity solution that is virtually invisible. We can also remove old and unsightly amalgam fillings and replace them with the tooth-colored fillings that will give you a more attractive smile.
