Composite (tooth colored) Fillings

When it comes to choosing the material to fill and fix the cavities in your teeth, you have at least two different choices. You can stick to the old silver amalgam fillings that dentists have been using for the past few decades, or you can move on and try the more modern composite fillings that match the color of your teeth perfectly.

Let your smile shine through

We at Dental Care of Nixa understand that making the right choices for dental health can be difficult, that’s why we constantly look for new and better solutions for our clients. The latest material used for filling your decayed teeth can make you look like you’ve never even had a cavity — the composite resin blends perfectly with the rest of your real teeth.

The biggest downside to using silver amalgam fillings is that they may cause discoloration and dullness over time. With composite fillings, you don’t have to worry about letting people in on your dental problems and accidentally flashing them a smile tinged with silver. The barely-there look of tooth-colored fillings allows you to talk, eat and smile with as much confidence as other people with a sparkling set of healthy teeth.

Apart from the obvious aesthetic advantage of composite tooth-colored fillings, they also carry additional benefits such as better durability and increased safety. The material used for tooth-colored fillings do not contain mercury or other heavy metals that may cause tooth sensitivity. Some patients report experiencing a metallic taste after amalgam fillings have been placed in their mouth, and this can be avoided by using composite restoration instead. Moreover, this type of filling does not require as much tooth preparation as amalgam fillings, thus retaining your tooth’s natural strength.

Our professional promise

Your composite tooth-colored fillings can give you many years of satisfactory service, but this procedure is highly dependent on the application technique and skills of your dentist. Dental Care of Nixa has a well-trained staff to make sure that each and every patients is provided with excellent service and dental care.
