If you are concerned about aesthetics and want the colour of a needed restoration to match the natural colour of your teeth, Sheppard Centre Dental offers composite resins. Depending on your bite and tooth function, these materials may be an acceptable alternative to dental amalgam.
Although they have the advantage of being tooth-coloured, composite materials were only recently used to restore molar teeth. This type of restoration is more expensive than amalgam, and in many cases, most dental plans will not pay the total cost when used in molar teeth.
Consult our North York dentists at Sheppard Centre Dental for more information.
