In the not so distant past, teeth were filled with a mixture of different metals (amalgam). Today you can get more natural-looking and metal-free tooth colored fillings. Tooth colored fillings can be used on both the front and back teeth, and are a good choice for patients who prefer fillings that look like normal teeth. Dr. Schramm uses tooth-like composite resins and porcelains to provide fillings that are both safe and predictable. Tooth colored fillings look and feel just like your natural tooth enamel. The shade and color of the composite filling material can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. The composite fillings can actually chemically bond to your tooth structure, to fill in cavities or repair chipped, broken, or worn down teeth. Tooth colored fillings also require less tooth structure to be removed than traditional amalgam fillings. If you’re ready to remake your smile, Dr. Schramm can easily remove and restore your old metal fillings with new, more esthetically pleasing tooth colored fillings.
