Tooth Color Fillings
Traditionally, silver amalgam —a mixture of silver-tin-copper and mercury—has been used to fill teeth. Today, composite fillings, also known as “tooth color fillings,” are the preferred filling material. Tooth-color fillings are metal-free, natural-looking filling material made from durable plastic mixed with glass, offering an alternative to porcelain veneer. Tooth-color filling can be used as a restorative solution to treat chipped, cracked, discolored, misaligned or decayed teeth.
