What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?

In the past, metal fillings were used to fill in cavities and to prevent dental decay. With modern technology, there is a different way to prevent tooth decay that blends with your natural teeth.tooth colored fillings berkeley ca

Tooth-colored fillings, or composite-resin restorations, are aesthetic, direct restorations, meaning they can be part of a one-visit service. Composite restorations look like teeth, unlike a silver amalgam restoration, and allow more conservative tooth preparation prior to a filling, so more natural tooth is preserved with composite, tooth-colored fillings.

Welcome back!  Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we are ONLY open because we have carefully planned and revised our office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members.

Our team closely follows guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, ADA, and Berkeley City in regards to existing and new personal protective equipment (PPE), updated engineering, modified administrative protocols, and extra safety practice protocols. You can expect to see some changes for your next appointment, such as pre-appointment respiratory screening, daily temperature-taking, social distanced office area, more air purification and ventilation in each operatory, staggered and lengthened appointments, and more physical barriers installed to keep the office a safe environment for everyone.

We ask that everyone 12 and older must have face cover on when you arrive at our office, and to help social distance, we may ask you and your family, companion, to wait in your car during any wait.

Thank you for your cooperation! We look forward to seeing you soon!
