At the Colorado Springs restorative dentistry practice of Dr. Gregory Solich, you can rely on us to provide metal and mercury-free fillings. White fillings, or composite fillings, are an attractive alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. White fillings are made of composite quartz resin, a material known for its strength, durability, and aesthetic qualities. Dr. Solich blends the material to precisely match your tooth shade. The advantages of white fillings include:
At your restorative dentistry appointment, Dr. Solich will gently remove the decay and shape the tooth. He'll use a mild solution to etch the tooth where the composite filling will be placed, and then he'll apply the resin, which bonds to the tooth surface. A special light hardens the filling.
If your teeth have decay or old, metal fillings, you may wish to replace them with composite tooth-colored fillings. There are many health and aesthetic benefits to taking amalgam out of your mouth and replacing silver fillings with tooth-colored composites. At Dr. Solich’s Colorado Springs restorative dental practice, he’ll listen to your concerns and help you decide on the best course of action. In some cases, he may recommend a porcelain inlay, onlay, or crown if a white filling won't provide enough structural support.
