Why might a patient consider Teeth Restoration by Chicago Dentist with Tooth Colored Fillings?


Dr. Peter W. Fry, DDS, of Making Smiles Happen in Chicago is happy to provide his patients with effective tooth restoration. Many patients who are experiencing tooth decay have a choice between silver amalgam fillings and composite fillings. Our practice focuses on using tooth-colored restorations for safety, effectiveness, and cosmetics.

Composite fillings, also known as resin fillings, are created from a mixture of acrylic resin and powdered glass-like particles. This material is placed in the tooth and hardened with a special blue light. While it is commonly used for fillings, it can also be applied to the teeth to repair a broken natural tooth. It is extremely versatile, beautiful, and effective at handling many dental concerns.

There are several reasons patients may prefer the use of composite fillings over silver amalgam. The first is cosmetic. The material can be made to match the color of the natural tooth, and once placed, is practically indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. It is strong and durable, and can be used on teeth near the front and back of the mouth. These fillings are completed in a single dental visit, and allow patients to preserve as much of their natural tooth structure as possible. It does not corrode, can sustain strong biting and chewing forces, and is relatively resistant to further decay in the same tooth.

Patients who are faced with the choice of silver amalgam fillings and composite resin fillings often select the more cosmetic, healthier option. Patients can speak with their dental team about the ways in which composite, tooth-colored restorations are more beneficial for both oral health and aesthetics, while still being affordable and attainable for most budgets.

If you live in the Chicago area and are considering tooth restorations such as composite fillings, contact our team at Making Smiles Happen today to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Peter W. Fry, DDS at his state-of-the-art dental facility. Our practice focuses on educating our patients on everything we provide, and make sure that those who visit our practice are well versed on their upcoming dental treatments and procedures.
