More and more focus is being put on our smiles. After all, your smile is everyone’s first impression of you. In fact, today, more money is being spent on cosmetic dental treatments than any other cosmetic procedure; thus, the popularity of invisible fillings made either of a composite resin or ceramic material. Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist and director of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, has been called Boston's Best Prosthodontist and has been on the forefront of development in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

People don’t like the way metal fillings look, especially if they have a mouth full of them. Now, with invisible fillings no one needs to see a mouth full of silver anymore. No longer do you have to be self-conscious because of a ‘silver-filled’ smile.

Invisible fillings have been around in cosmetic dentistry for 20+ years but material science advancements in the past 5 years have made them even better. If you need a dental filling, now you can hide it completely! Made for their aesthetic effect, the most important thing to know about them beyond the fact that they cannot be seen, even by you, is that they work. Invisible fillings seal the gap or decay in your tooth better than standard metal fillings. Now, your dental fillings will be stronger, less likely to break down, and invisible. Silver amalgam fillings can cause future cracks in your teeth, composite or ceramic fillings won’t.

Invisible fillings have a natural look and feel and are made for longevity. These bonded restorations are perfect for small to medium sized cavities, in fact, they are actually the filling material of choice for most dentists. They “bond” with your teeth and they come in multiple tooth-colored shades so they will match your natural teeth.

To seal your cavity better than silver fillings choose invisible fillings...either a composite resin or even better, a ceramic filling. This allows them to be stronger and less likely to decay or break down. Contact Newton Wellesley Dental Partners for natural look and feel to your dentistry.
