If you have metal fillings, you’ve seen the contrast these shiny deposits have against your white teeth, highlighting all of your cavities. Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, PDC dentists have more ways to create a pleasing, natural-looking smile. Today, patients have several choices of materials to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth. Natural looking tooth colored fillings, also known as composites, resins, onlays, inlays or porcelains, are more attractive alternatives to metal fillings. These non-metal fillings are safer and make teeth stronger. As a result, much less of the tooth needs to be removed, and they are virtually invisible.
