Today’s dentistry offers a myriad of ways to restore teeth. Metal-free (or composite) restorations are used to maintain and protect a tooth that has been damaged by decay. Metal-free fillings allow for conservation of tooth structure while preserving the natural appearance of teeth.
Metal-free fillings are a composite resin material that bond to existing tooth structure. They are color-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Silver fillings are prone to creating cracks in the surrounding tooth structure.
Our team of doctors are dedicated to conservative dentistry that will keep smiles healthy for a long time. Sensitivity to hot, cold, and sweets can be a sign of tooth decay, but cavities and tooth fractures don’t always hurt right away. Often times once symptoms appear the situation has progressed to a point where more extensive treatment is required.
