Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings


This patient's old metal filling was replaced with tooth-colored composite onlay.

Dr. Mironov provides tooth-colored fillings using a special durable, white filling material, and for large fillings may use an inlay or onlay.

Inlays and onlays are a type of filling that are used for restoration of broken-down teeth; either for large cavities or to replace an existing large filling. Inlays are designed for tooth damage affecting the indented portion of the top of the tooth while onlays are for more extensive damage.

ADVANTAGES OVER AMALGAM FILLINGS

Aesthetics is the big advantage of tooth-colored restorations over silver amalgam fillings. Additionally, as silver does not stick to teeth, healthy tooth structure is usually removed to keep a silver filling in place. Tooth-colored composites or resins permit your dentist to remove only the decayed area of your tooth. Unlike silver fillings, composite bonding expands and contracts just like your teeth and are therefore much less likely to cause cracks in your tooth. Composites bond directly to the tooth providing support.

INLAYS & ONLAYS FOR LARGE CAVITIES

Inlays and onlays are a type of filling that can be used to replace an existing large filling or as a restoration of a broken-down tooth.

Dr. Mironov uses high quality ceramic material, which allows him to create beautiful tooth-colored inlays and onlays that match the color and appearance of the rest of your teeth.

 

SAFE REMOVAL OF AMALGAM FILLINGS

Create a beautiful smile with the removal of your old silver fillings. We use special equipment and procedures for safe removal of amalgam fillings so that any toxic vapors released as a result of the removal of the mercury in the silver fillings are contained.

Composite tooth-colored fillings are more biomimetic (similar to the natural composition and function of the body) than amalgam fillings, and they will give you much more confidence in your smile.
