Dental Fillings in Amarillo

Natural-Looking and Lasting Dental Restorations

At Oneida Dental, we use safe and long-lasting dental techniques and procedures to maximize your results. Our goal is to create full and confident smiles. Our team at our Amarillo office can repair your decayed and damaged teeth with dental fillings, which restore proper tooth function for biting and chewing and provide natural-looking results. Our dental fillings are mercury-free for improved results and greater safety. We can not only provide new dental fillings, but also replace silver fillings that may impact your dental health.

Oneida Dental offers mercury-free dental fillings to repair your damaged teeth. Call us today at (806) 216-6910 or use our online form to schedule a visit!

The Differences Between Silver and Tooth-Colored Fillings

Silver dental fillings are weaker than tooth-colored restorations. They usually weaken and break, which leads to the development of new cavities. This type of filling also contains 50 percent mercury, which can leak and damage your teeth and gums. 

Tooth-colored restorations are safer and stronger solutions. Their resin onlays for a tighter and more secure fit to your treated tooth and match your natural teeth. Their resin contains fluoride and helps to minimize tooth decay. 

We Can Replace Silver Fillings with Tooth-Colored Restorations

If you previously got silver fillings and are interested in switching to a tooth-colored restoration for stronger and better-looking teeth, we can take care of it at our practice. This generally takes two visits to complete. 

What you can expect during the first appointment:

  • Removal of the old filling 
  • Removal of any additional tooth decay
  • Creation of an impression of your teeth 
  • Setting a temporary onlay on your tooth

We send the impression of your teeth to the laboratory so they can create the customize restoration to match your natural teeth.

During your second visit, our staff members will:

  • Remove the temporary onlay
  • Prepare your tooth with a conditioning gel
  • Place bonding cement on the tooth
  • Use a high-intensity light to secure the resin to the tooth
  • Polish your treated tooth

The new dental fillings are more aesthetically pleasing and are sturdier than your previous silver ones. Tooth-colored restoration can last two decades or more with good daily oral hygiene and regular checkups at the dentist. 

If you are looking to replace your silver dental fillings with safer options, contact our Oneida Dental staff today at (806) 216-6910 or via our online form to schedule an appointment.
