Tooth-colored fillings or bonded fillings are better for the teeth in so many ways. They look great, they feel great, and they help preserve the tooth. The bonding of the tooth actually creates a stronger tooth than a silver mercury filling, which is shoved into the tooth and can create cracking of the tooth. I haven't used a silver mercury filling in over 25 years. I was an early adopter of tooth-colored fillings and have had the opportunity to see how they perform over time and they're great.

Why Would I Need a Tooth Filling?
- Repair the Effects of Tooth Decay – These restorations fill the void left by cavities and support your tooth, so you can eat normally and without discomfort.
- Seal a Root-Canal Treated Tooth – Often, Dr. Robert Nelson will place a tooth-colored filling to seal a tooth after root canal therapy.
- Repair a Broken Tooth – If the damage is minor, we may be able to fix your broken or cracked tooth with a composite resin instead of a dental crown.
Benefits of Composite Resin Tooth Fillings
- Appearance – We match your tooth-colored fillings to the color of your natural teeth, leaving you with a fully white appearance when you smile.
- Versatility – Composite resin is also the same material used for tooth bonding. We can fix chips, crack, cavities, stains, and more all with the same material.
- Tooth Preservation – Composite resin bonds well with your natural tooth, meaning there is less tooth structure removed than with metal fillings or other restorative dentistry treatments.
- Safety – Our tooth-colored fillings are free of metal and mercury, so our health-conscious patients or those with metal allergies can be reassured with their dental solution.
