Fillings

Fillings

Traditionally, dental fillings have been made of silver amalgam. However, our dental office uses only composite, or tooth-colored, filling material. Our dentist and team have chosen to use composite filling materials in order to provide you with a more natural-looking result and to promote better long-term oral health. There are many benefits to composite fillings, including:

  • Material that bonds to your tooth to provide more support for the tooth’s structural integrity
  • Reduced risk of the treated tooth breaking or fracturing in the future
  • Insulation from temperature changes caused by foods and beverages
  • Better seals around the edges of the damaged area, increasing the tooth’s resistance to decay and leaks
  • The ability to correct cavities that are too small for amalgam fillings to repair
  • Fillings that can be repaired and replaced without being removed from the tooth
  • No mercury or other metals are used, making the filling safer

When you receive a composite dental filling, our dentist will carefully select a filling that matches your natural tooth color to give you a more beautiful and healthier-looking smile. Fillings can usually be placed in a single appointment.
