Our Composite Tooth Fillings Look Beautiful

If you’ve ever had a cavity filled, especially when you were a child, chances are you got an old-fashioned silver amalgam filling. This type of tooth filling has been around for decades because it does a good job at repairing teeth.

However, composite resin tooth fillings accomplish the same repair without using any metal. These fillings are tooth-colored, so they’re virtually undetectable by others. This means:

  • You won’t worry about having any more metal in your mouth.
  • You’ll never wonder if other people can see your filling when you talk or laugh.
  • You’ll enjoy the full function of your teeth with a discreet filling.
  • Your filling won’t become unsightly as metal darkens.

Inlays & Onlays Repair More Extensive Damage

Sometimes a traditional tooth filling won’t work for bigger damage to a tooth. In these cases we may recommend a porcelain inlay or onlay or a crown for repair:

  • Inlays – Inlays cover the top of a damaged tooth, between the cusps (tips).
  • Onlays – Onlays cover the top of the tooth and extend onto the sides for additional repair.
  • Dental Crowns – A crown covers your entire tooth, so it’s suitable for repairing severe decay as well as damage like cracks and breaks.

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.

What tooth fillings are safe?

There is still much disagreement as to whether traditional amalgam (mercury) fillings pose any health risks. However, we have chosen to land on the conservative side of the debate and only offer metal-free composite fillings at our practice. Besides giving you peace of mind about your health, they also blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile. No one will even notice you have a composite filling.

How long do tooth fillings last?

We use natural-looking composite tooth fillings that blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. On average, you can expect these fillings to last five to seven years, although some patients do get a longer life from them. Their longevity will ultimately depend on factors such as the location of the filling and your oral hygiene habits.
