Protect Your Oral Health With Metal-Free Fillings

While some dental practices don’t have an issue using amalgam fillings, we choose the more conservative route. While the research is ongoing, there are some known risk factors associated with the use of mercury in fillings. With this in mind, we go the extra mile to protect your long-term health by avoiding metal fillings.

With our composite fillings, you’ll experience many benefits you won’t find with silver fillings:

  • Less Tooth Structure Removed – Unlike metal fillings, we won’t have to remove as much of your healthy tooth structure to place the composite material in your tooth.
  • More Confidence When You Smile – Composite fillings won’t be visible to the naked eye and will look natural inside of your mouth.
  • Reduced Tooth Sensitivity – Using amalgam material to repair teeth can lead to tooth sensitivity. Composite resin seals better on your tooth and prevents this issue.

Our team can even remove and replace any existing amalgam fillings. If we determine a cavity or some other tooth decay is too significant for a filling, we can repair your tooth with an inlay or onlay or with a dental crown instead. Our two in-house prosthodontists are experts at repairing smiles with restorative procedures. They will work with you on what your smile needs to get in top shape. We can even make your restorations at our practice at our in-house lab.

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.

When do tooth fillings need to be replaced?

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.
