Unfortunately, no matter how well you try and take care of your teeth, there may come a day when you need a filling due to a cavity. The good news is that the age of black mercury fillings and crowns that show gray at the gum line is over!
Traditional fillings use silver and can be very noticeable. Our state-of-the-art tooth colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Drs. Abraham and Andrea Asseff can match both color and texture to natural teeth so the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than traditional fillings.
Because tooth colored fillings are made with a composite resins, they look more natural than other filling materials. When you leave our office you can smile, talk, and eat with confidence. In addition, dental sealants are fluoride releasing sealants that prevent further decay on top of the upper and lower back teeth. It is best for children getting their permanent teeth to prevent decay.
