It’s always much easier to treat a problem when it’s small. Dealing with a small cavity is much simpler than dealing with a seriously decayed tooth. When you come in for your dental checkup, if we spot a cavity, we can repair it with natural-colored tooth fillings in Dorr. With our help, you will:

  • Put an end to dental discomfort
  • Prevent more extensive damage
  • Enjoy a restoration that blends in with your other teeth
  • Feel more confident about your smile

Enjoy the Natural Appearance of Composite Fillings

It’s never good news to hear that you have a cavity. However, when you keep up with your regular cleanings and exams, we’ll be able to spot decay in its earliest stages for easier treatment. Luckily, the treatment for a cavity can be relatively simple and is often done in just one appointment. We will numb the area with local anesthesia, and you can also receive oral sedation if you need it.

We use composite material for your fillings, which offers many benefits:

  • Looks Natural – This is one of the biggest benefits of using this type of material for your filling. It will blend in easily with your other teeth, so no one will see your dental work when you open your mouth to laugh or talk.
  • Less of Your Tooth Removed – Amalgam fillings require us to remove more of your tooth structure in order for the filling to be placed. Composite material retains more of your tooth, which means there is less drilling.
  • Bonds Easily – When we fill in your cavity with composite material, it bonds to your tooth much better than a metal filling. You’ll experience fewer instances of your filling coming loose, as a result.
  • Mercury-Free – While there is still an ongoing debate about whether mercury is harmful, we err on the side of caution. With non-metal fillings, you aren’t exposed to mercury and can feel confident about your long-term health.

If you are dealing with dental pain, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our tooth fillings in Dorr may be just the solution you need. Call 616-202-5959 for an appointment today.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth fillings are made of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, they can be matched to the color of your other teeth so they aren’t noticeable in your smile. They also cause fewer allergy issues than amalgam.

Which tooth fillings are safe?

Although no definitive evidence has been found that silver mercury fillings are harmful to human health, we prefer to err on the conservative side. That’s why we use completely safe and beautiful composite resin tooth fillings. These tooth-colored fillings are made up of tiny particles of glass and plastic, not metal.

Are tooth fillings painful?

At Dorr Family Dentistry, tooth fillings are placed in the most comfortable way possible. Our team will make sure that the area we’re working on is completely numb before we try to fill any teeth. You shouldn’t feel a thing except for a slight sensation of pressure. Plus, we’ll fully answer any questions you have before we get started.
