Repair Teeth With Matching Materials
We are an amalgam free office. I can’t remember the time where a silver filling was placed in this office. The newer materials that we have now are so much better than the materials that we had two, three decades ago. Now we have a material which we can actually place it, and it will mimic the surrounding color of the teeth. This helps us when we have patients that come in that may have teeth that are fractured in the front, or they have large restorative areas in the back where they’re missing filling. Sometimes we can replace the majority of the tooth structure by the new composites that we have out, that will last a long time. Obviously, at times it does not take the place of replacing the tooth with a crown or a cap. But for many instances, it works beautifully and patients love it.
