Are Cosmetic Dental Fillings Right for You?

Many have asked the question: Are cosmetic white dental fillings right for me?

Let's explore some facts.

Silver fillings, amalgams and metal fillings are all the same.  If you have any, chances are that they have been there for a long time.

Many older silver fillings have cracks, splits, chips, gaps, rough edges and decay, many times
Silver Fillings Can be Replaced with White Fillings
indicating a need for replacement.  As long as there is enough healthy tooth structure left, a white filling is a good replacement.

White fillings, tooth colored fillings, composite resins are all the same. The white fillings can greatly improve a smile, as they are indistinguishable to the untrained eye. They not only look better, but are just as durable.

White fillings are not just for repairing a tooth, the material can be used to improve the cosmetics of a tooth.They can be used for people without naturally perfect smiles.  Gaps, rough edges, and uneven surfaces many times can be improved with white filling material.  Our cosmetic dentists perform every procedure with the goal of improving the look of a tooth and smile.
