Filling Cavities with More Holistic Materials
Tooth fillings are one of the oldest and most common forms of restorative dental treatment. That’s because cavities are the most common chronic dental condition. The discomfort that they cause has long forced patients to seek relief, and today, the most effective way to achieve it is with an advanced, biocompatible tooth-colored filling. Made from lifelike porcelain (ceramic) or tooth-colored composite resin, today’s fillings restore your tooth and alleviate the discomfort of your cavity, while blending in discreetly with the natural appearance of your teeth for optimal cosmetic results.
Upgrading Your Old Metal Amalgam Filling
While many of today’s fillings are made from discreet, biocompatible materials, some patients still have the old metal amalgam fillings that they received many years ago. As part of our holistic approach to restoring and preserving your smile, we can safely and quickly remove your amalgam filling using an advanced mercury vapor ionizer – a specialized vacuum system that neutralizes the potentially harmful mercury content in the metal material. Then, we can replace the metal with a highly customized ceramic or composite resin filling, creating a more durable and lifelike filling for your cavity.
Fix Your Cavity with a More Lifelike Filling
Tooth-colored ceramic and composite resin fillings not only blend in with your tooth but also offer better protection than metal amalgam can in the long run.
