Tooth-Colored Fillings – Portland, OR
A Better Solution for a Seamless Smile
Dr. Teasdale and the entire team at Advanced Dental Arts NW strongly recommend bonded porcelain tooth-colored fillings for Portland, OR dental patients and advise against the use of mercury-based metal restorations in the mouth for a great many reasons. Amalgam (silver alloy) fillings break down at the edges, which can lead to new decay or weakening of the surrounding tooth structure, plus they introduce the presence of mercury to the body. The metal of silver fillings also corrodes and expands over time, which causes cracks and fractures in teeth. These kinds of fillings can also cause stains on your teeth and gums.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Dental fillings can help maintain a healthy smile through restoration. If tooth structure has been lost to decay, abnormal wear, or earlier restoration, Dr. Teasdale and his team can provide natural-looking bonded porcelain dental fillings.
Closely matched to the color and shape of your surrounding teeth, these restorations protect your teeth while providing a long-lasting and beautiful smile.
Materials like bonded porcelain restore beauty and vibrancy to the teeth, have fewer issues with corrosion over time, and glass ionomers release decay-arresting fluoride, encouraging the remineralization of the teeth, which helps strengthen them.
In short, bonded porcelain fillings are far more durable, hygienic, conservative, esthetic, and versatile than metal ones. Completed within a single dental office visit, this bonding procedure can significantly improve the appearance and strength of a tooth.
