Tooth-colored fillings are a more attractive and more conservative alternative to older silver amalgam fillings. By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, our dentists are able to provide fillings that are virtually invisible. Many patients are even choosing to have their old amalgam filling removed and replaced with the more esthetic and “invisible” composite resin material. These patients want to enhance their cosmetic appearance by ridding their mouth of unsightly silver fillings and replacing them with the natural-looking fillings. These resins are not only better in appearance; they are also made to provide strength for a weakened tooth by bonding the walls of the remaining tooth together.
