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!

Dr. Seth Askins was wonderful with our son, who has not always been an easy dental patient. He was thorough and friendly. All of the staff are courteous and respectful, from the receptionists to the hygenist and assistants. Very pleased!

I had a crown come off prior to leaving on vacation, and I called Dr. Nigro early on Monday morning. He returned my call in a timely manner, and he thought I would be able to wait until Thursday when I was scheduled to return from vacation. Dr. Nigro did see me on Thursday afternoon after my return and did what was necessary to check on the issue with my crown. He did give me options for my situation, and I will be seeing him for my six month check-up in October. If there are any more issues before then, I am to call and get an appointment to check out what is going on.

I thought that I had the best dentist in Missouri. However, now that I have been treated by Dr. Anthony Nigro, I now think my Missouri dentist was only the second best. Dr. Nigro is the best dentist that I have ever had. He is thoughtful, considerate, and he explains what he is doing. And, there was no pain either in the pre-treatment shot, nor in the actual drilling and filling of my tooth. He is awesome! Five Stars!

I have known Dr. Nigro and his team for close to 10 years, and I trust them 100% to do excellent work from routine cleaning to root canals. Going to dentist was not my favorite thing to do when I was growing up, but Dr. Nigro and his staff welcomed me like a family member. We always catch up what's going on with our lives every time I visit. Dr. has performed couple of root canals and several restorative works on me, and he makes sure to call me next day and ask if I was doing ok. Two weeks ago on Friday after office hours I had an emergency situation, my front tooth decided to came off during work, and Dr. Nigro took me in asap. I looked like an hockey player and being a girl I cried looking at mirror. He restored my front tooth like nothing ever happened to that tooth, and I had a biggest smile when I left the office. Thank you Dr. Nigro, Tina, Traci, Deb, Kim, and everyone at office I cannot thank you enough for your skills and caring service.

They made me feel very comfortable during the process. I had to have crowns and I am afraid of dentists, but they helped me to get over my fear. They helped me to get past that. They treated me like I was a member of their family. They were wonderful, caring people, always asking me if I was okay. They were very caring people. I would recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr. Nigro and his staff have provided me with high quality dental care over the years. Dr. Nigro always addresses all of my questions and makes me feel comfortable in the dental chair. My experiences are always positive and pain free! Dr. Nigro even came in late on a Saturday night to fix my tooth in an emergency situation! In my 60+ years of seeing medical professionals, Dr. Nigro has been the only doctor who personally calls to check on me after a procedure. I also appreciate the staff's attention to detail and professionalism. This office is a class act!
