Tooth Colored Fillings San Francisco

Composite Fillings

Today, more and more patients are requesting composite fillings instead of traditional amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are made from tooth-colored materials that look natural and restore a decayed or previously filled tooth.  These fillings blend well with natural teeth, and San Francisco Dentist Dr. Mohamed Ali might recommend that tooth colored fillings are used to repair areas that are close to the front of the mouth.

Typically, a composite filling procedure only requires one visit to your local San Francisco dentist.  Tooth -colored fillings require less of a healthy tooth to be removed to hold the filling.  In-turn, more of the healthy tooth can be preserved as the composite material is bonded into place.

With regular dental checkups, your composite fillings can last for years to come.  During a consultation with Union Square Dentist Dr. Mohamed Ali, you will learn more about composites, and find out if this form of mercury-free dentistry could be right for you.

At our San Francisco clinic, we use holistic dentistry to help patients achieve their smile goals with safe, natural techniques.  Metal free restorations allow for patients to restore fillings without the negative effects of metal amalgams.
