It wasn’t long ago when patients were limited to silver fillings that onlookers could easily spot from a distance. Progressions in dental industry technology have paved the way for the creation of tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings. Silver amalgam fillings certainly served a purpose, yet their time has come and gone. If you have a cavity, do not settle for an unsightly silver filling. Instead, opt for a composite filling that matches the color of your teeth for a gorgeous smile you are proud to show off at work, school, and elsewhere.
