Delaware County Fillings
Fill Cavities with Tooth-Colored, Metal-Free Composite Fillings
You may need a filling if you have chipped, gapped, cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth. The most common reason fillings are placed is to treat cavity, or dental decay. Left untreated, tooth decay can lead to the need for more extensive treatment such as a root canal or even extraction followed by dental implant surgery. At Williamsburg Dental, we use composite, metal-free dental fillings that look natural and help hold the tooth together better. They are also a much more aesthetic option compared to amalgam (silver) metal fillings. The cementable resin will match the color of your teeth exactly, so no one will be able to tell that you’ve had a cavity filled.
What Are the Benefits of Composite Fillings?
There are many advantages of composite, tooth-colored fillings over traditional metal fillings, such as:
- Strength: They increase the strength of your tooth because they are chemically bonded to the tooth structure.
- Natural-looking: They look and feel completely natural and no one will notice you have had a filling.
- Safe: Composite fillings are free from a dangerous metal called mercury.
Can I Replace My Silver Fillings?
Yes! We first place lidocaine, a local anesthesia, in the treatment area. Next, the silver filling is carefully removed with high-volume suction. Our dental office will take every precaution to ensure you do not inhale or swallow the filling as it is removed. Once the metal filling is removed, next, we will clean the tooth thoroughly using a special protocol to make the upcoming restoration durable and long-lasting.
