Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations that blend right in with your teeth. Each filling is carefully selected from a shade of material based on the natural color of your teeth. Once completed, no one will even be able to see it!
Amalgam-Free Indianapolis Dentistry
There are many advantages of tooth-colored fillings, besides how great they look in your mouth. Composite fillings:
- Require less tooth preparation
- Are smaller than metal fillings
- Are free of metals and mercury
- Can be placed on any tooth
Because composite bonds directly to your tooth structure, these fillings preserve as much tooth enamel as possible. Rather than cutting a wedge into your tooth to secure a metal filling in place, composite fillings are bonded directly over the area where decay has been removed.
Replace Your Metal Fillings
If you have old metal fillings, you can choose to have them replaced with tooth-colored fillings that look and feel better. Do you see dark grey or blue areas on your teeth when you smile? Then it might be time to see if your old fillings are beginning to leak.
