Do Tooth-Colored Fillings need to be obvious?
Also called inlays or onlays, they make silver fillings a thing of the past. Silver fillings contain 50% mercury which can be harmful for some patients. Also, after time silver fillings can expand and contract, sometimes leading to fractures in existing tooth structure. This can often lead to root canals, crowns, or extractions. Out with the old and in with the new technology! Even the inside of your mouth deserves to be beautiful, so there is no need to have those dark silver fillings in your mouth anymore. Replacing them with tooth-colored inlays can give you the confidence to laugh or yawn as big as you want! Made out of porcelain or composite resins, tooth-colored fillings are not only more aesthetic than your old silver fillings – they’re more biocompatible, too. Depending on the situation that saves the most tooth and will last the longest, porcelain or composite inlays or onlays can potentially save your teeth.
