Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

The benefits of cosmetic fillings for patients in Southeast Carolina

Chances are, if you have had a filling in the last few decades, you may notice a dark gray spot where the tooth was filled. Silver fillings can be unnatural in appearance, causing people to feel embarrassed about their smile. They may not blend in with the natural tooth and are a visible reminder that you had a cavity.

Cosmetic Fillings in Southeast Carolina Area

In recent decades, with advances in dental technology, we’ve found that patients are interested in an aesthetically appealing solution. Tooth-colored cosmetic fillings have become the standard choice for patients who want their tooth restored in a beautiful way.

Cosmetic fillings are made from a composite resin, which is a mixture of glass and plastic. Composites are tooth-colored, and the material can be tinted, allowing them to be virtually indistinguishable from the natural tooth. The resin is molded and placed into the cavity of the tooth and then hardened and polished to complete the restoration. Composite resin fillings are very strong; they bond to the natural tooth, which minimizes potential for breakage. Composite is resistant to temperature changes. So, it withstands the forces from biting and chewing, and other functions.
