Get Metal Out of Your Mouth With Composite Restorations
- April 5, 2018
Metal tooth fillings really stand out in your smile – and not in a good way. Metal fillings show as dark spots. They are especially distracting if you have lots of fillings or if they have darkened over time, turning black with age.
If you want a more natural look, Dr. Thomas Peltzer can replace your amalgam (metal) fillings with composite restorations made of tooth-colored material. He’ll match the shade of the composite to your surrounding teeth, so your restorations blend right in with your smile.
Metal fillings can also sometimes cause cracks or other damage over time. Depending on the size of your filling and any later damage, Dr. Peltzer may recommend a composite filling, an inlay, an onlay, or a dental crown to restore your tooth.
