Tooth Fillings, Ottawa-Glandorf OH

Many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and we know that by unavoidable design, silver/mercury fillings ultimately result in a weaker tooth structure. Tooth Colored Restorations create fillings that are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Disadvantages of Silver fillings:

Silver fillings have many drawbacks. The edges of the silver filling can wear down, become weak or break. This results in the tooth not being protected and lets cavities get started once again. With age, the metal of a silver filling expands, contracts, and can split.

Silver fillings contain 50 percent mercury. They can corrode, leak and cause stains on your teeth and gums.

Fortunately, silver fillings can safely be replaced with Tooth-Colored Restorations.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations

There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.

Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums!

The result is a beautiful smile!

Replacing Silver Fillings with a Tooth Colored Restoration

You can have your silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored restorations. This process can be completed in one appointment.

Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected!

Thatcher is five years old and has never been scared to go to dentist. He told his mom his tooth hurt and was able to get into dentist within a couple days. After getting a filling he never complained and told his mom how awesome the dentist was after. He loves your office.

I was very pleased of the process I had went through with Dr. Ellinger and the staff’s help for my dental implant. Dr. Ellinger analyzed and made sure the final crown/tooth would fit properly with no flaws. He answered all questions pertaining to the whole process of how the implant will be placed and the aftermath when the implant is in. After 3 months later, I have had no problems with the implant. Thank you Dr. Ellinger and the staff of Ottawa Glandorf Family Dentistry.

Dr. Jared and Traci are the greatest! They are always happy and smiling and make you feel like family! They made a root canal enjoyable! LOL! They are extremely thorough and explain everything in great detail. My son broke his front tooth over a weekend and Dr. Jared and Traci came in on their time off to repair his tooth so he could get back to college. That speaks volumes on how much they care about their clients. They truly are the best and they can make a dreaded trip to the dentist absolutely enjoyable!!

Very knowledgeable and professional. I have received excellent dental care at a reasonable cost. You can trust these people completely. I experienced a dental emergency late one night and Dr. Nigro returned my phone call within a few minutes. So refreshing to see how much they genuinely care about their patients.
