Do you offer white fillings?
At Scott Family Dentistry we offer white tooth-colored fillings to protect the health and beauty of your smile.
Many patients express concerns over amalgam metal fillings because they are concerned about mercury or having a dark-colored restoration that affects their smiles. We completely understand!
Though metal fillings have been deemed safe by the U.S. Public Health Service, many patients still seek an alternative.
Composite resin (tooth-colored) fillings are made of a BPA-free plastic and glass mixture. Composite comes in a wide variety of colors that Dr. Scott can match to your natural teeth. In addition to being the more attractive choice, they also provide a number of other benefits:
Conservative – Composite fillings require the removal of less of your tooth structure as compared to amalgam fillings, making them the more conservative option.
Versatile – If you have small chips or other damage to your teeth, we can make repairs using composite that matches your tooth structure. Since composite adds to your tooth structure with minimal prep work, it is both conservative and affordable.
Long-lasting – Composite fillings are longer lasting than ever. Most dentistry will need to be replaced at some point, but you can count on an esthetic and durable restoration with tooth-colored fillings.
