Improve your smile with Tooth-Colored Fillings. Dr. Jenista provides tooth-colored fillings using a (biocompatible) dental composite. For larger restorations, he may use an inlay or onlay – inlays are used to repair smaller damage to the tooth and onlays are for more extensive damage.
Advantages over Amalgam Fillings
Aesthetics is the big advantage over silver amalgam fillings. Additionally, as silver does not bond to teeth, healthy tooth structure is usually removed to keep an amalgam filling in place. Composites permit your dentist to remove only the decayed area of your tooth. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings bond to the tooth. They have properties similar to your teeth and are much less likely to cause cracks. Dr. Jenista etches, primes and bonds the material to the tooth, increasing the strength of the tooth rather than decreasing it.
