Metal fillings are a thing of the past, even though you may have some in your mouth, depending on your age. Thanks to the continual advancements in dental technology, we are fortunate enough to be able to work with composite materials that have no harmful side effects or ugly aesthetics.
Our team, at the office of Dr. Angela Berkovich, DMD, has the ability to fill cavities with a synthetic, tooth-colored composite material that lasts longer and is essentially unnoticeable. No longer will teeth be filled with dark, metallic fillings anymore. The natural look and more durable filling make using composites a win-win situation.
Stronger, safer, and more durable, the composite fillings that we use are far superior to the old metals used before and are mercury-free. The polymer resin that is made from ceramic and plastic hardens into a durable filling that blends right in with the surrounding tooth.
