Bell Dental Group fills teeth with safe, composite material that closely mimics the appearance and function of natural teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings are an attractive alternative to traditional metal (amalgam) fillings. Made of ceramic material, composite fillings restore the tooth’s original integrity while providing a natural appearance.
Tooth-colored fillings offer several advantages over metal fillings, including:
- More durable and longer lasting than metal fillings
- Able to closely match the color of the tooth, providing a natural look
- Less likely to crack over time, as the filling will not expand once placed in the mouth
- They do not contain mercury, making them a safer option for overall health
