When a tooth needs a filling then one option is to do a white composite filling. Although we normally use the white filling materials, we have silver fillings available if a patient prefers that. Other great options are Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) created by the laboratory and cemented in place. These indirect restorations are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth and can last longer. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
The result is a beautiful smile!
