Tooth-colored fillings are a safer and more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings that were used in the past. By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, Dr. Sulzbach is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually unnoticeable. The process of removing old amalgam fillings and replacing them with white fillings can create a more pleasing, silver-free smile.
What are white fillings?
White fillings are made of composite resin and fill cavities just like silver amalgam fillings. However, white fillings are matched to the color of your teeth, making them much more aesthetically pleasing. Over the years, tooth-colored fillings have become much more popular. As the availability of white fillings has increased, more and more patients are having their cavities filled with beautifully white, tooth-colored fillings. There are possible dangers associated with mercury, which can be contained in amalgam fillings.
