In the last several decades, changes in technology have brought about significant advancements in dentistry. Your dentist now has new tools that aid in the early detection of dental diseases, techniques that facilitate comfortable treatment, and the ability to design your smile to be both healthy and attractive.
Dating back many decades, dental fillings were crafted from gold or “silver,” which was really a combination of metals bound together with mercury. These types of restorations, although still offered by many dentists today, are outdated when compared to the tooth-colored dental fillings offered in our practice near Normal. In fact, composite restorations are nothing new. These fillings have long been used to restore front teeth. The change is that people now choose composite fillings for less visible fillings, as well, and for a good reason.
