Older silver, metallic fillings are a thing of the past. Today’s standard and best practice is to fill a tooth with a composite material (often called white or tooth-colored fillings). Our family dentistry has many colors so we can match your teeth perfectly. This advanced material is completely safe and where a patient has decay or a chip, the dentist uses it to fill the tooth. The composite material is cured with a special light. After your tooth is filled, you can eat and drink as soon as you want since the material is cured instantly. Ask us about using composites for your next filling.
