Composite Fillings in Troy MO
Many people are familiar with silver fillings that were placed to repair cavities. They have been used for over 100 years to restore broken or decayed teeth. What most people don’t know, however, is that the silver fillings (amalgams) actually start to leak and corrode over time, causing the tooth to blacken. For those who are worried about blackened teeth, we can replace your silver fillings with composite or tooth-colored fillings. Using a porcelain-like material, the composite filling will bond to the tooth for a tight fit. In addition, our dentist will match the color of the filling to your teeth for a completely aesthetic result.
Composite fillings are a wonderful option for those with smaller cavities or who are allergic to metal fillings. Not only do they look better than amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are also stronger and tend to last longer.
