Composite fillings, or composite resins, are tooth-colored fillings that are durable and resistant. They are also expected to withstand pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
Dr. Tom Brooks offers composite fillings because they are known to be used more often than gold or silver fillings. This gives the patients at Tom Brooks DMD the opportunity of filling the holes in their mouth with a natural material rather than a substance that has the potential of distracting others from their smile. This is also a great option for those who do not favor silver amalgam fillings. Many people believe silver fillings are bad for their health. This is because silver fillings are known to release toxic substances into the mouth that can alter the oral health and possibly make them susceptible to different diseases. This is because the filling is made of mercury.
We are happy to bend to our patients’ needs and give them the option of using composite fillings to boost their appearance and also allow them to feel safe. We will do whatever we can to take special care of all of our patients, and offering composite dental fillings in Gold Hill, Oregon, is one way of proving that.
