Affordable, dependable fillings from a highly-reviewed Winter Park Dentist!
Winter Park Dentistry is proud to offer attractive metal-free fillings to our patients. Metal-free fillings, also called composites or white fillings, are the preferred material in modern dentistry for cavities. Composite fillings are designed to match the tooth’s color and blend in naturally with the tooth enamel. Decades of research in this area of dentistry have given way to the most advanced materials yet to date. Here at Winter Park Dentistry, we use nothing but the best composites and adhesives to insure that your fillings last a very long time.
Some of the advantages of metal-free fillings are:
- More natural looking than the regular metal (amalgam) fillings. Metal fillings can turn black with age, and are easy to see inside your mouth.
- White fillings strengthen the tooth. Layers of silicon dioxide, which is a resin mixture filled with glass, are used to fill and stabilize the tooth.
- White fillings harden very quickly after they are placed. Metal fillings usually take a couple of hours to harden.
- White fillings are bonded to the tooth with adhesives. This strengthens the overall tooth. Silver fillings cause cracks and weaken the tooth over time.
We strive to be as gentle and caring for our patients as we can. The number one comment from patients after a filling was that they could not believe how gentle and pain free the experience was!
