Tooth-Colored Fillings - New York, NY
Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, are created when bacteria attacks your enamel on your teeth. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a combination of metals like silver or mercury. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere very well with the teeth and the mercury can be dangerous to your overall health. At Core Smiles Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in New York, NY, our cosmetic dentists offer tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin or porcelain to fill and protect cavities. They can also remove old metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored fillings for a safer and better-looking cavity treatment.
