Although there is absolutely no scientific evidence that silver amalgam fillings are a health issue we rarely use them because we simply have a better option!
White, tooth shaded composite fillings are the standard of care today and this is the material we use in the vast majority of cases. Why wouldn’t we want a filling that actually looks like the tooth instead of a gray filling? We want your filling to disappear in the mouth, not stick out…
If you need a new filling or old, failing fillings need to be replaced, rest assured we will be using state of the art tooth shaded composite fillings!
