Non-Mercury White Fillings

Non-Mercury White Fillings Near You

A composite (tooth-colored) filling can repair teeth that have been damaged by fractures, decay, cracks, etc. The damaged part of the tooth will be removed and filled with the composite material.


There are many types of filling materials offered. Your dentist will discuss which type is the most ideal for your unique case. Composite fillings are commonly used as they can be matched to the color of your teeth and are durable.


Like most other dental restorations, these fillings are not invincible and fully permanent. They will need to be replaced once they begin to wear and tear. However, they are very durable and will last for many years.


Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Closing gaps between two teeth



How are composite fillings placed?

Typically, composite fillings can be completed in a single appointment. First, your dentist will administer local anesthesia and remove the decay. Your tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned before the filling is placed. Your dentist will then shape and polish the filling to restore your tooth’s appearance and function.


It’s normal to experience increased tooth sensitivity after your procedure. However, this will quickly subside once your tooth gets used to the filling.


We will provide you with thorough aftercare instructions after your treatment. It’s important to practice good oral hygiene habits and regularly visit the dentist to maintain your new fillings.
