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!

Holistic options

Dr. Virtue uses composite resin fillings. This dental material is made from a mixture of fine glass and plastic. It provides many benefits, including:

  • Safety – Composite resin is a proven, well-established filling material.
  • Conservative – Composite resin fillings are placed directly into the tooth, which requires minimal removal of natural tooth structure. Additionally, composite resin fillings do not expand or contract with changes in temperature, which eliminates fractures and reduces the chance of bacteria entering the tooth.
  • Natural-looking ­– Composite resin can be matched to the existing tooth. So, it is natural looking and blends in seamlessly.
  • Durable – Composite resin is a strong material that can withstand the natural bite and chewing force on teeth. These restorations can last a long time!

The process of composite resin fillings

Once it is determined that a patient has a cavity in need of a composite resin filling, we can schedule an appointment for the restoration. First, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed and thoroughly cleaned out. Then, the dentist will place the composite resin filling material directly into the tooth, filling in the area. A special light is used to harden the resin. Afterward, the dentist will evaluate the bite and then shape and polish down the filling, so it feels comfortable and looks just like nearby teeth.

Candidates for beautiful fillings with holistic dental services near Statesville, NC

If you have an area of decay that is too large for a composite resin filling, we can still recommend other holistic options. Inlays, onlays, and crowns can be placed to repair the damaged tooth structure and restore appearance and functionality. In our office, we use CEREC technology to fabricate these restorations in our office while you wait.
