Jason L. Montgomery DDS

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Plano

What are the differences between tooth-colored fillings and amalgam fillings?

friends laughingFillings are the most common restoration for teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. Better yet, advances in dental technology allow Dr. Montgomery to provide his patients with stellar materials that are both seamless and sturdy. However, you may still have fillings in your smile that are “silver.” More traditional materials for fillings have potentially hazardous consequences, which is why our team here in Plano, TX will be happy to remove them for you and replace them with tooth-colored fillings instead. You can rest assured that our Plano dental office relies on only the latest in dental materials and tools when it comes to treating your smile.

Why are “silver” fillings bad?

Fillings in the past were made partially from silver and partially from amalgam mercury, which often led to a dark and discolored tooth that stood out from the rest of the smile for all the wrong reasons. These metal fillings also made teeth much more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, and worse, they would expand as well during these times, allowing bacteria to enter and cause decay.

What is a tooth-colored filling?

You’ll be happy to hear that today, Dr. Jason Montgomery uses tooth-colored fillings to create a look for patients that is both healthy and beautiful. Also known as composite fillings, these restorations are safer, stronger, and more enduring than traditional fillings. Here at our Plano office, we can even custom-color the restoration so that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
