Are you embarrassed by the gold, silver, or dull gray
color of your fillings? Have some of these fillings turned black? Are
you worried that those are the only things people see when you smile or
speak? If so, you’re not alone and now you can do something about it.
White fillings, also known as
porcelain or composite fillings, are special fillings designed to match
the natural color of your teeth. White fillings are used to restore
your tooth or repair a defect. The fillings may also be used to replace
or restore old mercury fillings. The porcelain filling essentially
becomes part of the tooth itself.
White fillings contain no mercury.
The porcelain filling is shaped specifically to your tooth itself,
giving you a natural look while the filling goes virtually unnoticed.
White fillings are the most attractive, durable alternative to silver
fillings on the market.
If you have a cavity or tooth that
needs repair, or even an old mercury filling you would like to replace,
white fillings may be just what you are looking for to give you the
picture perfect smile.
