Tooth repairs do not need to leave you with metal fillings in your mouth. Keep your smile white and bright with composite fillings. At Ora Dentistry, we are happy to offer composite fillings to our patients for dental repairs. Whether you want to replace old metal fillings, repair a chipped tooth or fill a new cavity, composite fillings are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can blend perfectly into your smile for a healthy, beautiful appearance.
Although composite fillings have been available for many years, they have improved in durability with dental advancements. These white fillings were once only used for front tooth repairs when the filling would be noticeable. Most back teeth or molars that needed fillings still received amalgam or metal fillings. Now, composite can be used for almost any filling or tooth repair, even replacing old metal fillings in molars. This can give you a completely white smile without metal that can contain mercury and other harmful substances.
