An increasingly popular alternative to silver (mercury) amalgam fillings are composite white fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings contain no mercury and are virtually invisible. Our team at Choudhury Dental Center can shade them according to the color of your teeth to create a perfect match, giving you a beautiful, white smile!
Benefits of Composite White Fillings
- Created to match your tooth to ensure a natural look and feel
- Because composite fillings can be created in smaller preparations, less of your tooth structure is lost and less drilling is needed
- The material is made from acrylic and glass particles, containing no mercury or other metals
- Provides support to remaining tooth structure, and insulates against temperature changes
