Keep Your Tooth Intact With a Great-Looking Filling

We offer dental fillings as an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution for treating cavities and restoring damaged teeth. At our practice, we place mostly composite tooth fillings. Made from a mixture of tiny plastic and glass particles, they are designed to match the natural color of your teeth and blend in with your tooth enamel.

Non-metal fillings offer you a number of benefits:

  • These fillings create a natural and appealing appearance.
  • They bond directly to your tooth, which helps strengthen your dental structure and prevent further damage.
  • This type of filling requires minimal removal of healthy tooth structure, preserving as much of your natural tooth as possible.
  • Composite fillings can be used for both front and back teeth, making them a versatile option for restoring cavities in different areas of the mouth.

If you have a cavity or need a tooth restoration, tooth-colored fillings may be an excellent choice for you. Our team will assess your dental needs and determine if composite fillings are the best option to restore your tooth’s health and appearance.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth fillings are made of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, they can be matched to the color of your other teeth so they aren’t noticeable in your smile. They also cause fewer allergy issues than amalgam.

Which tooth fillings are safe?

All dental fillings are safe for most patients. However, some studies have raised concerns about the long-term health impact of mercury, which is used in amalgam fillings. Both the FDA and the American Dental Association say mercury in fillings is safe. However, mercury isn’t a concern at all with our composite fillings.

How long do tooth fillings last?

The life of fillings will vary, depending on their location and your oral hygiene, among other factors. A composite filling typically lasts from five to 10 years. No filling is designed to last a lifetime. You can maximize the life span of any filling by brushing and flossing every day and visiting us at least twice a year for professional cleanings.
