When your teeth are damaged by cavities, Drs. Umansky, Zafer, Farmer, and Nikmard can provide you with a dental filling to repair the damage and restore your tooth. In the past silver (amalgam) fillings were the most commonly used filling material. Silver fillings are not only unattractive, but also weaken the tooth in the long run. For this reason, Aesthetic Dentistry Associates uses tooth-colored (composite) filling material to restore your teeth and give you a solution that will last for decades.

Why You Should Replace Your Silver Fillings

 
Silver fillings present many problems for your smile and oral health, including:
• A high mercury content, which has been identified as poisonous
• They expand and contract over time, weakening your tooth and leading to more tooth damage and future cavities
• Highly unattractive

Tooth-colored filling material has been found to present many advantages, such as:
• A completely natural appearance
• 100% safe for use
• Strengthens your existing tooth structure
• Provides a seal over the damaged area that can last for decades
