Even a small cavity can cause big problems. Left untreated, tooth decay can only worsen and result in tooth loss. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Ramsey only uses tooth colored composite resin fillings to restore teeth compromised by decay. If you're embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings, you may be a good candidate for tooth colored composite resin restoration. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive and healthy state, without compromising your good health like metal fillings. Schedule a restorative appointment with Dr. Ramsey for your new tooth colored fillings today.
Do You Still Have Metal (Amalgam) Fillings?
Tooth colored composite resin fillings represent several advantages over traditional silver, or amalgam, metal fillings. Concerns about the safety of mercury filled metal fillings have prompted many of our patients to replace them with durable, attractive composite resin. Dr. Ramsey uses a safe protocol for removing metal fillings to alleviate fears and restore oral wellness. At your checkup or new patient exam, Dr. Ramsey will assess the integrity of your existing fillings and inspect each of your teeth for decay. If you need a new filling or want old metal ones replaced, he’ll custom-tint a small amount of composite resin which can be bonded directly into your prepared cavity. Composite resin won’t warp or change shape, and will last for many, many years.
Why Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth colored fillings offer many benefits over metal fillings. Because composite resins are not made of metal, Dr. Ramsey can blend and mix shades to find the perfect color to match your natural teeth. This means only you and Dr. Ramsey will know you have any fillings at all. Another benefit is that the tooth colored composite bond actually supports the remaining tooth structure, deterring breakage and insulating against temperature changes. Medium and small composites can last seven to ten years, just as long as any metal restoration. Additionally, tooth colored composite resins allow Dr. Ramsey to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact than amalgams. Dr. Ramsey believes in the conservative approach to dentistry – the more natural tooth structure you keep, the healthier teeth you’ll likely have in the future.
