For over 100 years, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth. The only other alternative was gold and that was always too expensive for most folks. Now there is a new and economical way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings. The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix. The doctor bonds the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light. This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.
Once completed, the tooth has a natural appearance and is actually
stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to
bond the resin to the tooth. Resin restorations not only look better, but
they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings.
Please call with any questions you may have about the benefits of resin restorations.
