Peter Thompson DDS

Metal Free Dentistry

metal-fillingsFillings are the most common restorative dental procedure. Traditionally, Carlsbad residents suffering from decay and the resulting cavities were given standard amalgam mercury fillings. However, these unsightly restorations run the risk of cracking a tooth or permitting the development of more decay as they expanded and contracted with changes in temperature.

Fortunately, modern dentistry has evolved beyond amalgam fillings. That means everyone in Carlsbad can receive safe and effective metal-free composite fillings. Crafted from a modern dental resin that bonds directly to your tooth, composite fillings are strong, reliable restorations that require the least possible removal of your healthy tooth structure. Each filling placed by Dr. Thompson is custom-made to match the color of teeth, so your new filling will fit right in with your stunning, cavity-free smile.
