Tooth Fillings Frisco, TX

Like a weed in your yard, a cavity can quickly go from being nearly unnoticeable to causing some pretty big problems. Left untreated, decay can get inside your tooth and cause a painful infection. That’s why it’s important to see us for regular dental exams, where we can find cavities in their earliest stages and repair them with tooth fillings in Frisco.

A dental filling will:

  • Eliminate decay to preserve the health of your tooth
  • Stop damage and prevent infection
  • Avoid the need for a larger and more costly restoration like a crown
  • Restore comfortable chewing and other oral function

If you think you might have a cavity, call us today at 214-740-6082. We use electronic cavity detectors to find and treat decay before it can do serious damage.

Dental Fillings Don’t Have To Stand Out In Your Smile

You’ve probably noticed how silver-colored fillings made of amalgam (a blend of metals) stand out. Worse, they darken and become even more prominent over time. To avoid dark spots in your smile, you can receive fillings made of composite resin. We’ll closely match the color of this durable material to your tooth so your filling isn’t noticeable at all.

In addition to superior aesthetics, our composite fillings:

  • Are Easier On Your Tooth – Our dentists don’t need to remove as much of your tooth structure to place a composite filling.
  • Don’t Contain Mercury – Metal fillings contain mercury. While the FDA and the American Dental Association consider the use of mercury in fillings to be safe, some research has linked it to adverse health effects. With composite fillings, there’s no need to ever worry about mercury!

You’ll Find Other Options For Larger Cavities Too

Larger cavities may require a more extensive dental restoration. In addition to fillings, we offer:

  • Dental Crowns – We’ll use a crown, which covers your entire tooth, to fix the most serious dental damage. In addition to extreme decay, crowns can mend cracks and breaks.
  • Inlays – Often called partial crowns, inlays cover the top surface of your tooth.
  • Onlays – Onlays are similar to inlays but slightly larger, covering one or more of your tooth’s cusps (raised parts of your tooth’s top surface).

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth dental fillings are constructed from composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made from a mix of metals, they can be matched to the shade of your other teeth so they aren’t visible in your smile. They cause less allergic reactions and sensitivities than amalgam fillings too.

What tooth fillings are safe?

All dental fillings are considered safe for most patients. Some studies have raised concerns regarding the long-term health impact of mercury, which is used in amalgam fillings. Both the FDA and the American Dental Association state mercury in dental fillings is risk-free for almost everyone. Mercury isn’t a worry at all, though, with our composite fillings.

When do tooth fillings need to be replaced?

The life of fillings will vary, depending on where they are located in your mouth and your oral health, among other factors. You can make the most of the life span of any dental filling by brushing and flossing every day and seeing us at least twice a year for professional cleanings.
