Home ยป Mercury-Free, Tooth-Colored Fillings

We may recommend a filling if your tooth is damaged by decay or injury. We provide mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to aesthetically restore damaged and decayed teeth.

What are fillings?

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 range of shades, our dental team at Tooth Acres Dentistry 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. This makes them the most desirable alternatives, especially considering their cosmetic appearance when complete.

What is the process of obtaining a dental filling?

The process of placing a mercury-free, tooth-colored filling is simple and usually requires just one visit to our dental office. Your gentle dentists, Drs. Alyssa Fisher and Gary 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.

How long will a dental filling last?

Depending on various factors, dental fillings can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years. Some of the most important factors include your overall dental health, the location and extent of the damage or decay in your tooth, and whether you maintain good oral hygiene habits at home. If you avoid foods known to cause further decay or damage to your teeth and brush and floss daily, you can help prolong the life of your fillings.
