Match the shade of your natural teeth

Tooth color restoration uses tooth-colored composite material to replace silver amalgam fillings and restore a beautiful and healthy smile. With metal-free restoration materials such as porcelain or composites, it is finally possible to beautifully repair and match the color of your teeth.

Amalgam alloys slowly expand over time, placing added pressure inside the tooth against the walls due to a chemical reaction with the trace amounts of zinc in the material as it reacts with saliva.

Dental Inlays and Onlays make it possible to replace unsightly silver fillings and restore teeth that are cracked or fractured with beautiful and healthy tooth-colored restorations. Inlays are a particular type of filling that can address cavities and other damage; they fill in holes and hollows in a tooth in the cusps. Onlays fill like a cap or cover that extends onto more of the teeth' chewing surface; they work similarly to crowns but do not cover the tooth's entire mass. differences between inlays and Onlays

Inlays and Onlays are the optimal choices for metal-free repairs providing long-lasting strength and durability over conventional fillings and allowing for more of the natural tooth to be conserved over dental crowns and bridges.

Artistic talent and expertise in cosmetic dentistry ensure they will be designed to match your teeth, reviving your natural strength, wear, and function, providing beautiful, seamless restorations.
