Why we use composite fillings in Canfield
Composite resins, or “tooth-colored fillings,” provide durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth and are completely safe. We only use high quality composite materials and believe they are superior to amalgam fillings. Our dental office in Canfield is 100% mercury free.
Advantages of composite fillings
- They are safe and contain no mercury.
- They are strong and can be used in any tooth.
- They are attractive, with many shades of white to match your smile.
- Composite material bonds to the tooth surface better than metal amalgam.
- Patients report reduced sensitivity compared to amalgam fillings.
Canfield White Composite Fillings
Dr. Barkett provides white composite fillings at our Canfield practice. White composite fillings are a great way to seal a crack or cavity in your tooth and because of durability and contour-ability, white composite fillings can be used to shape a tooth for a natural look. Unlike other filling materials, composite fillings can be closely matched to the color of your existing teeth to provide a more natural look. Dr. Barkett and her team can also examine your existing fillings to make sure they aren't leaking, which can lead to cavities.
