Dr. Jackie uses tooth-colored filings made of composite resins, a silicon dioxide-filled and tooth-colored plastic mixture. Composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state and are a popular alternative to silver or amalgam fillings of the past.
Dental fillings are used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or cavities just like silver amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are matched to the color of your child’s existing teeth and are virtually unnoticeable. As white fillings have become more attractive and the dangers of amalgam fillings have become more publicized, more and more parents are having their children’s cavities filled with natural looking tooth-colored fillings.
