Until recently, dentists used a silver and mercury amalgam to fill and seal cavities. Because a larger amount of the original tooth had to be removed, these types of fillings often weakened the teeth. Recent innovations now allow our dentist, Dr. Brian M. Lane, to replace old silver fillings with composite or porcelain fillings that are stronger, safer and more natural looking. Say goodbye to “metal mouth” and hello to a beautiful new smile.
Both composite (white) and amalgam (silver) fillings are done at the office of Brian M. Lane, DDS, PC. Dr. Lane usually only places amalgam fillings in back teeth.
