Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth colored dental fillings

Composite resin dental fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings and are made of a plastic dental resin combined with porcelain and glass particles. These types of fillings are very durable and are much more natural looking than the old standard silver mercury amalgam fillings.

If you have a cavity in a tooth, broken fillings or if your teeth are full of mercury fillings or amalgam fillings, you may want to change to composite dental. Mercury fillings or amalgam fillings can easily be removed and replaced with far more attractive colored fillings. Research shows that composite fillings actually strengthen your tooth and further protect it from decay. (See examples here) We offer this type of cutting edge restorative material because our patients deserve only the best.

For years, silver-mercury (Amalgam) was the primary material used by dentists to fill cavities. Today, tooth-colored restorations or fillings are superior. They are more natural looking and help to conserve and maintain the strength of your teeth. In fact, tooth-colored fillings and restorations are the state-of-the-art alternative for rebuilding teeth.

Dr Schneider can create aesthetically pleasing, high quality, ceramic and composite restorations that may prevent the need for more extensive treatment in the future. Phoenician Dentistry is proud to offer tooth-colored fillings and restorations exclusively, because our patients deserve only the best.
