Vedatis Dental Hospital patients tell us they like composite/resin fillings for their natural appearance and the near perfect color match we can get with your teeth. Composite fillings also bond better to your teeth, helping to restore the natural strength of your tooth. It has been found that old silver fillings darken the teeth, and act like a wedge in a tooth, often leading to tooth fractures. Our recommendation is when the old silver filling needs to be replaced, it is a good time to replace it with a white composite restoration. The difference between an arch with silver fillings and an arch with white bonded filling replacements is remarkable! Your smile will immediately brighten up with the gray silver fillings being removed.
