Albertville and Guntersville, Alabama
No more silver fillings
For decades, the most popular method of repairing decayed teeth was by filling the tooth with a silver filling, known as amalgam. However, decades later, we have learned that these fillings break down over time and do not last. Plus, amalgam fillings create a dark appearance to your teeth and can easily be seen when you talk or laugh.
Why Wall Street Dentistry does not use silver fillings
Amalgam fillings can cause extensive damage to your teeth since they tend to expand and contract due to the constant temperature changes in the mouth. The constant change can eventually cause the amalgam fillings to break loose, crack, or leak, which damages your tooth and may lead to more costly repairs.
Improve your smile with tooth-colored fillings
Wall Street Dentistry uses tooth-colored fillings to repair decayed teeth or replace your old amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin that bonds directly to the tooth.
- Better for your teeth – Resign fillings react to temperature changes in the same manner as your teeth, and can withstand moderate pressure for lasting results.
- Beautiful results – Resin filling material is available in a variety of shades to match almost any tooth, making them appear as natural as the rest of your teeth.
- Safer for your health – Resin fillings are also much safer than amalgam fillings, which have been known to leak toxins into the body.
