Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental fillings can be made from different materials. However, for decades dentists relied on silver amalgam fillings, which contain mercury. While this has been deemed safe, many patients still prefer the alternatives, including tooth-colored fillings in Royal Palm Beach.

Tooth-colored fillings are aesthetically pleasing, but they treat cavities and provide a durable alternative to silver amalgam.

Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin formula, which contains acrylic and ceramic, among other materials.

Your Royal Palm Beach dentist can choose a color that best matches your teeth with this option. After removing the decay, our tooth-colored filling closes the tooth to prevent further damage or reinfection. It is spread over the treated cavity in layers for best results.

You can also talk to our dentist about removing older silver fillings for the more attractive tooth-colored option. And the same material can be repurposed to conceal tooth flaws and discoloration in a dental bonding method.

Our patients have been delighted with their tooth-colored fillings, and dental bonding is an inexpensive cosmetic option for those looking for smile enhancement.
