White Dental Fillings
No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!
For years, this silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it today, including Champlain Smiles. While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings.
- Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into the tooth.
- Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer modern, state-of-the-art restorations that are a natural-looking white (matched to the color of your teeth), contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth.
- They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of your tooth so there is much less chance of decay in the future.
