For years, dental patients have relied on metal-based fillings to fill cavities, but Dr. Burpo offers patients innovative tooth-colored fillings to restore their smile. Amalgam fillings, or metal-based fillings, used to be the only option for filling cavities, but these fillings often lead patients to feel self-conscious about their smile. Tooth-colored fillings give patients an option that will fill cavities without detracting from their smile.
Today, when a patient requires a filling, most choose tooth-colored composite fillings. Instead of metal alloys, which are used in amalgam fillings, composite fillings are typically made of porcelain or microscopic glass in an acrylic base. Patients greatly benefit from this type of filling because they are match to the color of your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
