Erdenheim Tooth Colored Fillings

Go Natural with Tooth-Colored Fillings in Erdenheim

If you’ve got metal fillings, you know what they can do to your smile. Instead of gleaming white, your teeth look old, gray and discolored.

Return your smile to a youthful, vibrant, natural appearance! It’s easy with tooth-colored fillings.

But don’t just choose tooth-colored fillings for looks. Choose them for health, too!

Stronger Than Metal

Tooth-colored fillings (also called white fillings) are made of composite resin and provide stronger, safer restorations for your teeth. They require less tooth preparation (i.e. drilling!) than metal fillings do, leaving more of your natural tooth structure intact.

Safer Than Metal

Additionally, tooth-colored fillings are biocompatible, mercury-free and don’t react to temperature changes the way metal fillings do. When exposed to hot or cold (think coffee or ice cream) metal fillings expand or contract within the tooth. All this movement can weaken tooth walls, leading to fracture or breaking. The movement also creates space between the filling and the tooth wall; allowing dangerous bacteria to get in, unseen, and cause more damage and decay.

Replace Old Metal Fillings

If you have a mouth full of metal fillings that are discoloring your teeth, consider replacing them with tooth colored fillings. You’ll be amazed at the difference this simple change can make in your smile!

My wife had been going to Chesheim Dental Associates for years and was always urging me to go. When my dentist retired, I decided it was time to try them and none too soon! I broke my tooth and was in need of an immediate repair. Dr. Rothwell expertly repaired my tooth with excellent results. Because I had not seen a dentist in years, many of my previous repairs were failing and I was increasingly aware of my less than good looking smile. With dental problems looming in the future and feeling self conscious about my smile, Dr. Rothwell and I came up with a customized treatment plan. I’m so glad that moved forward with my plan. I cannot say enough about the exceptional care and experience I received. I should have listened to my wife years ago!
