  1. Do you want a radiant smile? If so, composite fillings might be for you. These can subtly correct problems in your smile while maintaining the appearance of your smile. We can match your filling to the color of your teeth, helping you keep your radiant smile. This type of filling is especially useful for the clearly-visible areas of your smile.
  2. Are you worried that your teeth will be weaker after a dental restoration? While it is true that a dental restoration can weaken the structure of your smile, composite fillings literally bond to your teeth. This provides additional support to damaged teeth.
  3. In the 1990’s, there was a disagreement about how dangerous the mercury found in many fillings is. No scientific evidence has been linked to health complications and fillings with mercury, but several individuals are still concerned with possible health risks. However, composite fillings contain no mercury, meaning that you will definitely be safe.
