Dental Filling Replacement

Silver-colored metal dental filling replacement can provide many aesthetic and health benefits. Dated dental therapies, including metal-based fillings and crowns, darken a smile by absorbing light. Even worse, they can disguise and even contribute to future dental problems by trapping bacteria in.

Composite fillings deliver superior appearance—and superior function!

Dental filling replacement removes dark metal fillings which were held in pace through a “puzzle-piece” type of mechanical bond, and replaces them with mercury-free tooth-colored composite restorations. These natural-looking filling replacements add strength and durability through an advanced chemical bonding that allows the custom-fit composite filling to become “part of your tooth.” We believe chemical bonding often provides for a much stronger and lasting tooth architecture, is a more tooth-conserving procedure, and delivers preferred aesthetics.

Dated metal fillings require drilling to form a shape that will mechanically “lock” the filling in place (a)—often resulting in thinner, weak tooth walls near the gum line. Continual pressure from chewing transfers force from the pliable metal fillings to weakened side tooth walls (b) and tooth floor (c) often resulting in tooth fracture. Modern adhesive fillings bond a hard, natural-looking composite material that quickly cures to actually become part of and seal the tooth. (d) Color can be adjusted for an exact match.

During the dental filling replacement process, we also clean and treat the tooth to halt any advancing and future decay. For larger fillings or fractured teeth requiring crowns, our porcelain crown therapy can re-create the missing piece of tooth to create a strong and natural-looking composite tooth free of silver-colored filling.
