Tooth Colored Fillings
The Healthier Choice for Staten Island
Metal inside your mouth acts like metal outside your mouth – it reacts to temperature changes. Metal fillings will contract when exposed to cold (think ice cream, a cool drink) and expand when exposed to heat (coffee, soup). This movement of expanding and contracting can weaken the tooth walls and eventually lead to factures or breaks. It can also create a space between the tooth wall and the filling, allowing bacteria to get under an existing filling and cause decay that your dentist can’t see.
Beautifully Healthy Metal-Free Fillings
We only use beautifully healthy metal-free fillings. Our attractive fillings look and feel the way nature intended. Today’s porcelain inlays and composite resins create fillings that not only look natural but also are stronger than materials of the past. Call today for more information!
