If your teeth are filled with dark metal fillings, your smile may be aging your appearance.
Of the most concern, however, is the fact that metal fillings can also damage the teeth. Amalgams expand with heat and contract with cold. This movement weakens the tooth wall, leading to fractures and allowing bacteria to enter and cause decay that is frequently not noticeable until their ultimate removal. Tooth-colored composite fillings are a safer, stronger, more attractive and an enduring alternative to metal. They conservatively restore teeth’s strength and a smile’s beauty.
