Common problems that veneers are applied for:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained or discolored teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
Tooth Colored Fillings
|Tooth Colored Fillings|
Silver fillings are a thing of the past..
In the past silver amalgam was the primary material used for fillings, however, it possesses no aesthetic appeal to patients and it could in reality cause damage to your teeth some time down the road. Amalgam material expands over time. When this expansion happens in a tooth it can cause the tooth to break, consequently requiring a crown to salvage the tooth.
Composite (tooth colored) material is today more generally applied for fillings. Not only is it aesthetically attractive, it has proved to be stronger and more durable than amalgam filling material. It’s made of porcelain and composite resin which is bonded directly to the tooth and involves less removal of your healthy tooth structure than if utilizing a silver filling material.
Composite fillings are as well healthier as mercury is not used in this product. The restorations may even be custom-colored to match your existing teeth while affording you the most natural-looking smile possible.
