Are you suffering from tooth decay? Has your poor oral hygiene effectively led to the creation of a cavity within a tooth? If so, dental fillings will be needed to eradicate any cavities that may be present. One highly effective option is dental tooth-colored fillings, also known as white fillings or composites.

Composite fillings are designed to treat cavities, without the use of metals and mercury as dental amalgams do. Dental amalgams use a metallic combination of ingredients including mercury to effectively protect your teeth from future tooth decay, whereas composite fillings commonly use resin or porcelain.

If you are looking for a dental filling that will blend seamlessly with your smile, then tooth-colored composites are your best choice. They are free of the metallic shine, and can be blended to naturally mimic the color of your teeth.

If you suffer from a cavity and require a tooth-colored composite filling, contact Riverside Dental at 904.355.5531 for the ideal treatment to save your tooth, and your smile.
