Fillings & Restorations
TOOTH-COLORED RESTORATIONS, AND PORCELAIN INLAYS
We recommend replacing your old fillings with newer, more durable and more aesthetically pleasing materials. Luckily, silver or amalgam fillings can be replaced easily using tooth-colored restorations.
Restorations offer many advantages. Tooth-colored composite fillings are tightly bonded to your tooth in order to form an impenetrable seal against bacteria. The bonding also strengthens the tooth. Of course, there is less thermal transmission through plastic fillings than metal ones, so your teeth will be less sensitive.
Composite fillings are highly polished, so they feel comfortable in your mouth. They’re also nearly invisible – Once we’re done, your tooth will appear as if there were never any cavity.
Smile Reflections creates fillings that are beautiful (or unnoticeable, if you prefer) and also strengthened weakened teeth. Tooth restorations are pleasing to the eye, and they’re also very strong.
OUTDATED GOLD AND SILVER FILLINGS
Gold and silver dental fillings have certain drawbacks. All too often, the edges of the filling become worn, then weaken and break. This may allow fresh cavities to begin in teeth.
Aging fillings of silver or amalgam may corrode or stain teeth and gums.
You may still have older silver-mercury fillings in your teeth from years ago. These fillings aren’t aesthetically appealing, and they also weaken the structure of the teeth to which they’re applied.
