Metal Fillings vs Composite Fillings[VIDEO]

If you have metal fillings, you know they know they darken over time, creating noticeable spots in your smile. Composite fillings, in contrast, are practically invisible. That’s one reason we use only tooth-colored composite for our fillings.

We also don’t have to remove as much healthy tooth structure to place composite fillings. In fact, thanks to our VersaWave laser, we can place most fillings without anesthesia or drilling! In addition, because composite won’t expand and contract the way metal does when exposed to temperature changes, composite fillings are less likely to cause cracks and similar damage that can cause problems. Finally, with no mercury, you won’t have to worry about possible long-term health concerns.
