Can I have my silver fillings replaced with white fillings?
Yes. Many people are having their long time silver fillings replaced with white fillings.

Are white fillings as strong as silver fillings?

Yes. They are made of a plastic or porcelain material that bond to the tooth for a tight seal. They are strong and stain resistant. The fillings are a natural tooth color which makes them invisible looking.

What do I do if I have cracked, worn or broken teeth?

Your teeth can be restored with a natural tooth colored resin that is shaped and polished so your tooth has a natural appearance.

What is the difference between a crown and a cap?

Nothing. They are the same thing. It's just different terminology.
