Cosmetic Esthetic Fillings

Silver amalgam fillings have been around for many years.  But one drawback is that of the dark or silver color when finished. Cosmetic esthetic composite fillings are a better alternative. Today there are beautiful esthetic composite fillings that have the look of enamel.  Esthetic fillings may be less expensive and more conservative than a crown or a bridge.

For a much more natural look, composite or “tooth-colored” materials may be used for that natural, tooth colored appearance.  Many patients have chosen the option of the composite fillings for many years.

One can change old, unattractive silver fillings into lighter, whiter and natural looking composite fillings within just a short time.  Materials are safe to use and have very favorable characteristics much like natural tooth enamel.  There are no metals within composite materials as there is in the silver/amalgam type fillings.

Cosmetic esthetic fillings are tooth colored and will lighten the color of a tooth to give a much more natural look of a smile from years before.  The technique and process of placing the composite filling will actually strengthen weakened remaining tooth structure unlike silver fillings that tend to weaken teeth over time.

Time and materials for the composite fillings are different than that of the silver fillings.  Cost will be more than that of replacing a silver filling but for many the look and beauty is well worth the extra expense.  The added time and cost is well worth.  It takes a great deal of time and expertise for a qualified dentist to create the look of a great smile.
