When teeth have cavities or are broken, in some
cases they can be restored with a simple filling.
Fillings have limitations and in order to be
successful a certain amount of strong tooth is
needed to support the filling. There are two types of
filling materials. One type is a tooth colored resin
material that bonds to the tooth. The other type is a
mercury filling that is silver in color. Many dentists
today will not use or recommend the mercury
based fillings. You should discuss this with your
dentist before the filling is placed in your tooth.
Tooth Colored Filling
The concept of "filling" is replacing and restoring
tooth structure that is removed due to decay or
fracture with a material. With today's technology,
you no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of
unsightly and unhealthy silver/mercury fillings or
metal margins of the past. Space-age,
state-of-the-art, tooth-colored resin or porcelain
adhesive materials are used to replace dark,
looking amalgam fillings.
