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!

As a 65 year old woman, I repeatedly receive compliments on my teeth! Dr. Nigro completed extensive restoration/cosmetic work on my teeth and I could not be more pleased with the results! Not only have I enjoyed interacting with Dr. Nigro, but I have been more than pleased with the professionalism of the office staff. In addition to Dr. Nigro, Tina has also made me feel quite at ease during appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Nigro and his staff to anyone seeking quality dental care!
