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, Dr. Eddleman, Dr. Cassis, or Dr. Crigler are able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. The removal of amalgam fillings can provide patients with white fillings that provide a more pleasing, silver-free smile.
White fillings are made of composite resin and serve to fill cavities just like silver amalgam fillings. However, white fillings are matched to the color of your teeth and are virtually invisible. Tooth-colored fillings have become more popular over the years and more and more patients are having their cavities filled with beautifully white, tooth-colored fillings.
When a new cavity needs filling, the vast majority of patients now choose tooth-colored composite fillings. Many patients also opt for the removal of their amalgam fillings as well. These patients want to enhance their cosmetic appearance by ridding their mouths of unsightly silver fillings and replacing them with tooth-colored composite fillings. This simple procedure is an easy way to make a big difference in your smile.
