Can my old amalgam fillings be replaced with composite fillings?
Yes! Dr. Gross is experienced at removing amalgam with an environmentally and health-friendly process, then replacing them with composite fillings, inlays, onlays, or crowns. For patients who are self-conscious about their smile because of conspicuous metal fillings, Dr. Gross can help improve their self-esteem with more modern and natural looking composite fillings. Composite fillings blend with tooth color and look natural.
How are composite fillings placed?
Placing composite fillings is a less invasive procedure than placing amalgam fillings. To prepare your tooth, we might employ air abrasion, and alternative to the traditional dental drill. After Dr. Gross removes decay, he will fill the void with a composite resin, tinted to match the color of your affected tooth. You will leave our office with a restored smile and confidence that your fillings are undetectable to others.
