Dental fillings are one of the most common procedures in the industry. So much so that many people associate fillings with the flashy, silver amalgam that may contain mercury. If decay has set in, don’t worry. We’re a completely mercury-free office, and we use only tooth-colored composite resin for all our dental fillings. Getting a filling is relatively simple, as we first remove the affected area of the tooth and replace it with the resin. Once cured, the filling is durable and barely noticeable, especially if on the back teeth. You’ll resume full functionality of your teeth. We may recommend replacement of amalgam fillings, as the metal can expand and crack with age, leaving your teeth vulnerable to new decay. Ask us how composite fillings can benefit your smile.
