You know that our Silver Smiles, NM team advises you to come right in if you have a cavity, so that we may provide you with a dental filling. Of course, you understand our reasoning. You know that above all else, we really want you to have a healthy smile and teeth that are protected from problems like increasing decay, infection, and breakage. However, you worry about the filling itself and you wonder about it! This is perfectly natural but we want you to know that you’ve got nothing to worry about and everything to feel relieved by. Consider the benefits that come with tooth-colored fillings that you may not have considered before.

They Look Like…Well…You Can’t See Them

When you think about someone’s smile with dental fillings, what do you imagine? Do you visualize teeth with large silver areas? Do you imagine white teeth with a gray cast? Whatever the case, you’re probably not seeing a beautifully white grin in your mind’s eye. However, when you receive fillings from our practice, you can expect a pristine and all-white smile. How is this possible, you ask? Well, we don’t use metal fillings (which you may know as amalgam). We use tooth-colored fillings instead, composed of material that we can tint to match the shade of the tooth containing decay. So, once the filling is placed and all is said and done, you’re not really going to see the filling. You’re just going to notice your restored, lovely looking tooth and your restored, beautiful-looking smile!

They’re Safe For Nearly Everyone!

Are you someone who gets nervous about dental fillings because of your sensitivity to metal? Maybe you are actually allergic, so this has been a concern in the past. Or, perhaps you don’t like the idea of placing metal fillings in your child’s smile because you’ve heard mixed information about the potential for toxicity. Great news: We provide composite resin or ceramic, which is free of metal. So, any worries you had about metals can be laid to rest and you can instead confidently come in to receive your filling from our team!
