Dr. Niles and the team at Niles Kenworthy Dental are committed to providing you with restorative options that will allow your smile to be one of confidence and beauty. When large fillings need replacing or added protection is needed, a crown, onlay, or inlay is usually the better alternative. View the services tab for more information about these options. For smaller restorations, a filling is often the answer. Natural tooth-colored fillings are now available that will result in a beautiful lifelike smile. They are bonded to the tooth and therefore can often be done with less removal of healthy tooth structure. Traditional amalgam (silver) fillings still have their place, and although not as aesthetically pleasing can be a very useful material in some special situations. See how the smiles of some of our patients have been restored and enhanced.
