At Now Care Dental, we specialize in emergency dental care. We are a mercury-free practice and solely provide composite dental fillings. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), composite resins or tooth-colored fillings are resistant to fracture, can withstand the stress of chewing, and blend well with your natural teeth.
Composite dental fillings are resin onlays which bond to the teeth creating a tight fit to the natural tooth. Since the resin contains fluoride, our dental fillings 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.
In addition, porcelain inlays and tooth-colored restorations create teeth fillings that are not only unnoticeable, but also add strength to weakened teeth thanks to new bonding technologies.
Silver fillings, which contain mercury and can corrode and stain teeth, can safely be replaced with stronger composite dental fillings in just two appointments – restoring them to a natural look and feel.
At your first appointment, we will remove the old filling, make an impression of your teeth and place a temporary onlay on the tooth. During your follow-up appointment:
