A “filling”, or a direct restoration must meet several criteria in order to have healthy long term success. Dr. Marley spends a little extra time on each filling in order to restore the natural contours and contacts between teeth that recreate nature’s balance of form and function. The goal is a durable, comfortable and aesthetic results.
Dr. Marley primarily relies on tooth colored composites for his filling material of choice. Advances in the chemistry of bonding have made this material a safe and effective choice.
If you have existing silver fillings that are in good serviceable condition, Dr. Marley will recommend that we keep them where they are.
On front teeth, our practice has adopted composite layering techniques that can mimic the natural variations in the shade and translucency of teeth.
