Until the last few years, silver amalgam fillings were the material of choice. However, a growing number of dentists have become increasingly concerned about the safety of silver fillings. In addition to small amounts of silver, tin and zinc, approximately 50% of the filling consists of mercury.
Tooth colored fillings are made with a strong dental resin and are matched to your tooth color. They also help strengthen the surrounding tooth against further decay.
Plus, Dr. Bartolome and Dr. Swearingen can replace your existing silver fillings with tooth colored fillings so your teeth look more natural when you smile and laugh.
