Remember when tooth ailments and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings? Those days are gone! Today, tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger and more natural-looking effect. These fillings bond and seal a tooth and, unlike mercury fillings, will not swell over time and cause tooth fractures or cracking. Best of all, the fillings are virtually undetectable and easy to apply. Of all the advancements in dentistry today, this is probably our patients’ favorite.
