However, many patients don’t want a silver filling interfering with their smile. Fortunately, Williams & Patterson Family Dentistry offers tooth-colored fillings that blend in with your teeth and won’t ruin your grin’s appearance.

Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin. This material is comparable in durability to the silver amalgam used in traditional fillings. In fact, composite fillings often require less drilling, allowing for conservation of more of your natural tooth.
