Mercury-free Dental Fillings

Going to the dentist for a filling is the most common restorative appointment. A composite, or tooth-colored, filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

Because composite fillings are tooth-colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth and are aesthetically pleasing when you smile. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth

Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
