Say Goodbye To Old Amalgam Fillings

white fillings NYC

Do you recall what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, the people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. With white fillings from Staten Island Dental Care, you can re-create that pristine look.

If you are like many individuals, you started developing cavities while fairly young, and getting those ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings that were used by family dentists everywhere. As time passed, two fillings became three. Then three fillings may have become four. Now when you open wide—others see a mouthful of metal.

Today, the replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive procedure available at Staten Island Dental Care. It can transform a smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.

Composite fillings are fabricated with a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which results in a natural tooth-colored material. They are quite durable when bonded to the tooth.

Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages over silver, the preparation requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure.

A conservative (as possible) restoration at Staten Island Dental Care leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material—your own enamel and dentin.
