Your teeth are naturally translucent and white but if you’ve had a cavity filled with silver amalgam fillings, you know they can discolor your teeth and your smile with a dark, grey, hue. Beyond the cosmetic downside, silver amalgam fillings can also expand over time and crack or break the teeth they’re supposed to protect in the process but those aren’t potential side effects you have to put up with. These days, dental fillings can look natural and get the job done. Your smiles improved appearance will be evident immediately. Whether you elect replace one crown or filling or all of your crowns and fillings, you will be amazed by how beautiful your new natural resin onlays are.
Tooth-Colored Crowns and Fillings
Although a common practice for cavity filling services in the past, Westend Dental uses the most recent industry standards of tooth-colored composite resin for all restorative and cosmetic procedures. The benefits of using tooth-colored composite resin instead of silver amalgam include better durability; more cost effectiveness as well as the ability to match the composite resin to your tooth color.
