Composite Fillings Restore Your Healthy Smile

If you had a dental filling growing up, you may have had the old-fashioned kind made with metal (or amalgam). Modern fillings are made with a tooth-colored composite material. We often recommend fillings for repairing small cavities, worn-down teeth, or chipped or cracked teeth. With composite fillings:

  • You don’t have to worry about reactions to mercury or other amalgam materials.
  • They require less tooth structure to be removed and won’t expand over time they way that metal fillings can.
  • They look better in your mouth, with no dark spots.

For more serious damage, you may need partial crowns called inlays or onlays or full-sized customized crowns. Dr. Rawlings will examine your mouth and take digital X-rays. She’ll discuss your options and explore which of our restorative solutions will work best for you.

With local anesthesia to numb your mouth, getting a filling isn’t an uncomfortable procedure. If you are nervous, sedation options are available. You can also cozy up with a blanket and wear headphones while we work.

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?

Opinions vary widely on which fillings are safe and which are not. Some dental professionals feel that traditional amalgam (silver) fillings should be avoided because of the mercury they contain. However, the ADA and FDA believe they are safe and pose no threat to your health. We place non-metal composite fillings, which are made up of tiny particles of glass and plastic.

How long do tooth fillings last?

We use natural-looking composite tooth fillings that blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. On average, you can expect these fillings to last five to seven years, although some patients do get a longer life from them. Their longevity will ultimately depend on factors such as the location of the filling and your oral hygiene habits.
