Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings in Rossville, KS

Most individuals over the age of 35 associate fillings with a mass of metal amalgam stuffed into a cavity in the tooth; this procedure was not only unsightly, but also harmed tooth structure.

The natural-looking fillings we use at our mercury-free dentist office in Rossville, Kansas, not only hide the obviousness of your dental work but also strengthen weak teeth.

Why Silver Fillings are Undesirable

Mercury makes up 50% of silver fillings. Over time, silver fillings' edges deteriorate and weaken. Hairline cracks and fissures develop as a result of the metal's expansion and contraction as the filler ages.

Infection and subsequent decay are frequently the results of bacteria entering the tooth's interior through these tiny fissures. Your neighboring teeth and gums may develop unattractive stains as the mercury begins to erode and leak.

Benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings

  • Composite fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth
  • When a significant amount of tooth structure has been lost, tooth-colored restorations might be applied to reinforce the remaining tooth.
  • Teeth filled with natural looking resin look more natural, and eliminate the feeling of a "mouth full of metal".
  • Since the composite used in tooth-colored restorations contains fluoride, decay can be prevented.
  • The composite resin wears like natural teeth, lasting for years.
  • Tooth colored composite fillings don't have to be placed down at the gum-line — meaning they are healthier for your gums.
