At South Bay Dental Esthetics, we are proud to be a Mercury/Amalgam- Free dental office—meaning we do NOT use silver fillings! At South Bay Dental Esthetics, we primarily offer two reliable, state-of-the-art cavity filling alternatives: Composite and Porcelain.
For the majority of cavity fillings, we use a composite solution which produces a white, tooth-colored filling. Composite Fillings are not only just matched to reflect the exact shade of your tooth, but they are also durable, reliable, and resistant to fractures. Furthermore, the “adhesively bonded” nature of Composite Fillings make them a less-invasive alternative than other fillings.
We also offer Ceramic Porcelain Fillings, which is another white, tooth-colored filling alternative. Ceramic, porcelain inlays and onlays serve as the most reliable, strongest, and longest-lasting cavity filling solution available in dentistry today.
To learn more about the benefits between Composite or Porcelain fillings, and to find out which option is right for you, give us a call or make an appointment.
