    What are tooth-colored fillings?

    Tooth-colored fillings are an exceptional replacement or alternative to silver or metal fillings that were commonly used for more than 100 years. Not only are silver fillings contaminated with mercury, a harmful substance to your body, but they are also unattractive.

    Tooth-colored fillings are also commonly referred to as “composite fillings” or “white bonded fillings” in the field.

    • Composite fillings are completely natural-looking; no one will even know you have a cavity!
    • Tooth-colored fillings are used to repair decayed, cracked, or broken teeth.
    • They are commonly used in our office to replace old silver fillings.

    Experience the benefits of tooth-colored fillings!

    In the past, the only solution to fix cavities was silver-mercury amalgams, of which several dentists around the world still continue to use. However, when metal or silver were used to fill cavities, the material did not allow for a tight seal, thereby letting moisture inside. Over time, the filling would expand and the tooth would crack at times, eventually leading to broken fillings. Moreover, old metal amalgam fillings would leave patients with discolored teeth.

    Nowadays, the composite fillings are chemically bonded to the problem tooth once the decay is removed. This process helps to protect the remaining natural tooth structure from breaking or eroding. Tooth-colored fillings also are:

    • Long-lasting and durable.
    • Completely customizable in size and color so there are no visible differences between the filling and your natural surrounding teeth.
    • Bonded extremely well to your natural tooth, thereby preventing leaks that can lead to cavities or dental problems in the future.

    Mercury-free, metal-free fillings: The healthy solution for cavities

    As you can see, there are several reasons why patients choose tooth-colored fillings versus silver amalgam fillings.

    If you are interested in replacing your silver fillings, we invite you to call Babylon Dental Care at 631-983-6665 to schedule your consultation appointment. Soon you will have a mouthful of natural-looking, dazzling white teeth!

    “This is the kindest, most compassionate office I have ever been to. Every person on staff is polite and courteous; not something you see too often these days. I ‘hated’ going to the dentist so much that I would only go when I had a problem. Since I started using Babylon Dental about 8 years ago, I go 2 to 3 times a year for a cleaning and just to make sure everything’s ok. I recommend this practice to everyone I know!”

The office from the waiting room to the exam room were immaculate. Everything that was done during my visit was explained to me in detail which helps for someone with a fear of the dentist. The best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office.””

    “Amazing. I am deathly afraid, and have been hurt by many dentists. But Melody, who did my x-rays and cleaning, was great. I was amazed how much they actually CARED about how I felt and was doing. Dr. Brown who read my x-rays sat and just talked To me not at me for a good 15/20 minutes. Didn't suggest root canals, posts n crowns, yell at me about my missing back teeth. He just talked to me about what is currently going on and his best suggestions to care for it, which didn't include root canals, extraction etc. Therefore I would highly recommend them. And thank you for a really positive experience”
