composite FILLINGS


Traditional amalgam (silver) fillings have been shown to weaken the tooth, making it more susceptible to breakage. Several replacement options, including composite fillings, porcelain laboratory fillings and porcelain crowns are alternatives to amalgam fillings.

Composite filings can be placed directly in the tooth once the amalgam fillings are taken out. The material is made of a combination of plastic and glass and is hardened in the tooth by a special light. Composite fillings are bonded directly to the tooth, but they aren’t as durable as porcelain in some situations. If the area to be filled is too large, a porcelain filling or crown is a better option.

Porcelain Laboratory Fillings
These fillings are made in a laboratory and then bonded to the tooth. The porcelain is shaded to match your other teeth and they are durable and long lasting. With good home care they are expected to last years longer than traditional fillings.
