Composite fillings or “white” fillings are a very effective way to fix broken teeth, reshape or recolor smiles, and replace unsightly silver fillings. The composite filling s use a bonding technology which can help strengthen teeth especially when replacing larger silver fillings in the back teeth, and it also enables the dentist to add on the front of teeth without having to remove a lot of tooth structure. Dr Funk uses this technology to rebuild and repair teeth that in the past would require much more invasive and time consuming procedures. If you have spaces between your teeth Dr Funk can close them and match the color of your teeth perfectly, if you teeth are crooked Dr Funk can make them seem straight again. Composite fillings are durable, they retain their color for many years, and they do not have any mercury in them like the silver fillings do so the composite fillings are less likely to be a health concern.
