Dental FillingsAn Overview
Dental fillings are a routine dental procedure commonly used to treat tooth decay. Greeley, CO dentists Dr. Kami and Kevin Marr offer both amalgam and composite white fillings for patients experiencing minor to moderate tooth decay.
Cavities are one of the most common dental concerns. Caught early, dental fillings offer successful and predictable results preventing the spread of decay. Dental fillings have long been used to repair damaged, chipped, cracked and decaying teeth. As part of our general dental services, your Marr family dentist will conduct a thorough oral health exam to outline each option.
As a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Marr is committed to the long-term oral health success of each of our patients. Respected members of the Academy of General Dentistry are dedicated to continuing dental education to help stay informed on the current treatments, technology, and techniques in dentistry.
Composite Vs. Amalgam Fillings: What to Consider
At Marr Family Dentistry we help patients make informed and educated decisions regarding their oral health. We provide comprehensive and personalized treatment and spend the time to ensure that our patients feel confident in their dental care. Your Marr dentist will help you choose the dental filling treatment that will best benefit you, based on your oral health, budget, and cosmetic goals.
Amalgam Fillings: Amalgam fillings are the traditional way to repair tooth decay. Silver in color, Amalgam fillings are visible, and can be distracting from your natural smile if located in the “smile-zone.” Amalgam fillings are the cost-effective alternative to white composite fillings and are long lasting and durable.
Composite White Fillings: Cosmetic white dental fillings are a metal-free alternative to amalgam fillings. Composite fillings can be color matched to your natural teeth by creating a seamless and beautiful smile. White fillings are highly durable and will last for many years with proper oral hygiene. White dental fillings can be used to replace old metal fillings for qualified patients.
