Tooth-Colored Restorations

A metal-free filling is a white, tooth-colored filling made of plastic resin and finely ground glass-like particles. It is used to fill a damaged or decayed area of your tooth.

Unfortunately, silver or mercury fillings (also called amalgam fillings) create cracks in the teeth and can darken or stain them. Amalgam fillings push against the tooth structure with temperature changes, causing possible fractures. This permits bacteria to enter the tooth and cause decay.

Metal fillings also contain mercury, which can be hazardous to your health and damaging to your teeth.

Why Choose Metal-Free Fillings?

Here are just a few reasons.

Metal-free fillings are a great choice because:

  • No mercury
  • Offer a natural and aesthetic look
  • Minimally expand/contract with temperature changes
  • Strong and resilient result

At McMaster Dental, we create a chemical bond between the tooth and your metal-free filling to achieve long-lasting benefits. Only you will be aware of the work you had because the metal-free filling is inconspicuous and unnoticeable to the outside world.
