In the past, dentists removed tooth decay and used metal/amalgam fillings to repair teeth. Modern dentistry allows Dr. Salami to use white, strong composite fillings instead of metal. Tinted to match your natural dentition, tooth-colored fillings create aesthetically pleasing repairs.
Unlike metal fillings, which can change shape or leak as they wear, composite fillings bond with teeth to form a solid surface that will stand the test of time. Tooth-colored fillings also require less removal of healthy tooth structure, so they allow for restorations that are more conservative. We can remove old, dark fillings so that you don’t have to live with a mouth full of metal.
