Tooth-Colored Restorations

By: Manhattan Dental Health  07/31/2015

At Manhattan Dental Health we do not use mercury-containing materials. Today, there’s no need unless money is an issue. “Silver fillings” are still used some places because they are less expensive and easier to do than tooth colored ones. Tooth Colored restorations are harder to do. They take longer and are more technique-sensitive. There’s a saying amongst Dental School educators that they can teach a “C” student to do an acceptable “silver filling” but it takes an “A” student to do an acceptable tooth colored one. How many “A” Dentists are there? Having said that, we do one type of non-tooth-colored restoration…Gold! Yes, Gold. It is still the standard by which restoration longevity is measured. NO, we don’t use gold where it shows. We use it where cosmetics allow (that’s your decision) and where function is paramount. What we mostly use is porcelain and porcelain-like composite materials. The decision is based on what we feel will last longest and be best for the tooth and your mouth. The decision is made on a tooth-by-tooth, individual-by-individual basis. That’s the way we do everything at Manhattan Dental Health, custom everything.
