COMPOSITE, TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

When the age-old headache of a cavity arrives, you know that a filling is needed. The concept of a filling is to restore an original tooth that is damaged due to decay or fracture of the enamel.

COMPOSITE, TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

FAMILY DENTISTRY

Dr. Mike fills new cavities and also replaces old, broken-down metal fillings (mercury containing) with composite fillings. He wants to brighten your smile and leave your teeth with a more natural look and feel.

We treat our Akron patients with the same level of care and respect as we treat our own families. This is why we only use the best materials in our office. Composite fillings restore the tooth, rather than “filling” the tooth. They bond directly to the tooth, strengthening the tooth by recreating most of its original shape. Composite fillings are also cosmetically appealing, as they match your natural tooth coloring.

With today’s advancements, there is no reason to bear the embarrassment of the unsightly and unhealthy silver fillings of the past. Dr. Mike uses amalgam free, state-of-the-art, tooth-colored resin. These composite fillings simply have physical properties closer to the tooth structure.

Tooth colored fillings are preferred by most patients because of their natural color, overall appearance and comfortable feel. Silver amalgams, on the other hand, weaken the teeth and make them more susceptible to breaking, which can be very expensive to correct. Composite material can save both time and money in the long run. In addition, hot and cold sensitivity is greatly reduced with composite material, compared to the silver/mercury amalgams. Finally, smaller holes are needed with a composite and composite fillings allow for healthier teeth, eliminating any traces of mercury.
