If your tooth is damaged by tooth decay or injury, we may recommend a filling. We provide mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings in Fort Wayne, Indiana to aesthetically restore damaged and decayed teeth. Tooth-colored dental fillings are created using composite resin and are thus also referred to as composite fillings or white fillings. Because composite resin is available in a wide variety of shades, our dentist can match the color of the dental filling to your natural tooth color for natural-looking, beautiful results. Unlike amalgam (silver) fillings, tooth-colored fillings contain no mercury and are safe for your health.
The process of placing a mercury-free, tooth-colored filling is simple and usually requires just one visit to our dental office. Your gentle dentist, Dr. Painter, will remove the damaged and decayed portion of the tooth, then clean and fill in the tooth. They will carefully shape and polish the dental filling to ensure that it fits your smile comfortably. Our skilled dental team will ensure that your dental visit is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. For more information on mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings, we invite you to call or visit us at Tooth Acres Dentistry today. We are dedicated to improving your smile!
