Fillings are a common treatment for cavities. Traditional fillings use amalgam, a mixture of metals suspended in mercury. While these fillings are incredibly strong, they are silver in color. This may not be an issue with back teeth so much, but they can cause significant aesthetic issues for treating cavities in your front teeth.
For cavities in your front teeth, we can restore your oral health, and improve the quality of your smile with composite fillings. These metal and mercury free fillings are made up of a mixture of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. Composite fillings are naturally tooth colored. When a composite resin filling is placed, they blend in perfectly with the treated tooth.

Dentures are a more traditional solution for tooth loss. This type of restoration is removable. It consists of replacement teeth set into a base that sits directly on your gums, using the tissue for support. Modern dentures have teeth made of acrylic resin or porcelain. The base is made from an acrylic material that is made to match the color of your natural gum tissue. Modern dentures are much more realistic and much less bulky than more traditional styles.
