The outer layer of your teeth is built from from micro-crystals made up of minerals like calcium and fluoride. This layer is called “enamel” and it is the white, durable material we all feel when we run our tongue over our teeth. This enamel is extremely tough; however, what’s underneath the enamel is a lot softer and can deteriorate quickly from cavities, injuries and gum disease. We recommend damaged enamel be fixed with fillings as soon as possible.
At our clinic, we can offer a variety of fillings, including several tooth-colored options. We can also replace outdated silver alloy fillings.
Silver Alloy Filling Removal
In the past, silver alloy was the most common material used for teeth fillings. Today, many patients consider metal fillings unattractive, which is why our clinic recommends you use modern composite resin that is indistinguishable from your natural tooth matter. We can remove your old silver alloys quickly and easily. We can also replace them with natural-looking composite resin fillings that match your natural teeth in color and texture.
The resin we use can be applied in a single visit to the dentist’s office and last you for years.
