Why might Evanston patients seek a Cosmetic Dentist for Fillings?


Restoring a smile after tooth decay has occurred is important to avoid the progression of the condition and further harm to the tooth or dental pulp. Treatment is essential to maintain the health of the mouth, and keep patients comfortable. One of the most common signs of tooth decay (also known as cavities) is sensitivity. Patients may have pain when eating, especially sweets. Patients who are experiencing this should see Dr. Peter W. Fry, DDS of Evanston as soon as possible for treatment to preserve the natural tooth.

While many dentists use silver amalgam fillings to address tooth decay, this has been shown to have a potentially negative effect on the health of patients. Silver amalgam fillings are made of high amounts of mercury. This material can release toxic vapor when heated, which can occur even with regular eating. This enters the bloodstream and can result in many medical conditions. Instead, patients visiting a cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Peter W. Fry, DDS can benefit from tooth-colored restorations.

Tooth-colored restorations are made of composite resin. These are completely safe to place in areas of tooth decay, and are commonly used for cosmetic purposes. Since they are the same color as tooth enamel, they are indistinguishable in the smile. Silver amalgam fillings are highly noticeable in the smile, and many patients feel self-conscious when they smile or laugh with this type of filling.

Dr. Peter W. Fry, DDS of Making Smiles Happen is committed to helping his patients achieve beautiful smiles while taking into consideration their overall health and wellbeing. By using composite resin fillings instead of silver amalgam, he is improving both the aesthetics and the health of the smile, which can have a dramatic effect on one’s self-confidence.

If you live in the Evanston area or surrounding communities and you are seeking a mercury free dentist who provides quality tooth-colored restorations, contact Making Smiles Happen today to schedule a consultation visit. We are excited to meet you and help you attain the best in oral health!
