Keep More of Your Tooth Intact With Tooth-Colored Composite

The first step in treating a cavity is finding it. Our dentists use advanced technology like intraoral cameras to locate them when they are small and easy to treat. This camera gives our dentists a good look at even the most hidden places in your mouth. They can share images with you on a monitor to show you what they find.

Our dentists use composite resin for your dental filling because they can match it to your tooth color. You won’t have any gray spots showing when you smile! In addition, composite resin:

  • Requires less modification of your teeth, so more of your tooth structure stays intact
  • Keeps your tooth stronger since it won’t expand over time as amalgam (metal) fillings often do
  • Usually lasts at least five years
  • Can be used in areas where other materials simply won’t work, such as front surfaces or edges of teeth

Call us at North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522 to book your dental exam. You can also make an appointment online. If we find any cavities, we’ll take care of them with Royal Oak tooth fillings!

Commonly Asked 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.

What tooth fillings are safe?

While there is still disagreement over whether traditional amalgam (metal) fillings are any threat to dental patients’ health, we prefer to be cautious. For this reason, we place only metal-free composite resin fillings made up of tiny glass and plastic particles. They look great and give our patients peace of mind about their health.

How long do tooth fillings last?

At North Oaks Dental, 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.

Can tooth fillings come out?

When you’re committed to routine dental care, the chances that a tooth filling will fall out are pretty low. We can often spot potential signs of trouble with restorations and take steps to fix them, often before you even notice a problem. But that doesn’t mean fillings don’t come loose or fall out on occasion. If you lose a filling, call us right away so we can arrange an emergency appointment as soon as possible.
