Tooth Colored Bonded Fillings
Here at Schoolhouse Family Dentistry we no longer use controversial, mercury-based, silver fillings. We exclusively place resin composite fillings that are tooth-colored and are light-cured or hardened instantly.
The composite material starts out soft and malleable, allowing Dr. John ample time to shape the perfect filling restoration. We have a variety of shades to choose from to closely match the natural teeth. The material is “bonded” to the tooth by chemical reaction and a special blue light hardens the material. Patients leave the office being able to eat immediately, no longer having to wait for the old silver- style fillings to slowly harden.
Tooth colored bonded fillings are incredibly durable, cost-effective, and they match the natural tooth color for an aesthetically pleasing smile. When properly cared for, these fillings can last decades before they need maintenance.
