Dental Fillings Portland OR

Dental Fillings in Portland OR don't have to be visible. This model has Composite fillings, so they don't affect her smile.A common dental restoration in Portland, OR is the application of dental fillings. This is a simple dental treatment to preserve and provide strength to a damaged tooth structure. There are two basic materials used for dental fillings, silver amalgam and composite.

Amalgam Fillings

Silver Amalgam is a blend of metal materials that is bonded using mercury, it provides a strong product that is durable and can withstand high pressure that comes from back teeth chewing. This is the traditional dental filling used in Porland, OR, we know it to be effective, but patients often do not prefer the look of having dark silver spots in their mouth.

Composite Fillings

Composite is a tooth colored material that is made up of quartz and a resin. Advances in composite materials have come a long way and it is also used for back teeth where the chewing pressure is high. This filling is also noted for its ability to blend in your mouth, giving a much cleaner look.

Dr. Kevin Morich and Dr. Jodi Morich loves using a composite material because it allows him to remove a smaller portion of the natural tooth than with silver amalgam, making it a less invasive repair. He also likes how they can stop potential tooth fractures and, in turn, prevent sensitivities with hot and cold foods. Macadam Dental will discuss with you which dental filling is appropriate based on where it will be placed, the cost, and preference.

Decay is only one of the reasons you may need a filling. Other reasons may include:

•  teeth that are cracked or broken.
•  teeth that are worn from nail biting or teeth grinding.
•  simple composite bonding repairs
Composite bonding for Aesthetics.

Composite bonding can be used to repair chips and cracks in your teeth. At Macadam Dental, we are able to use composite filling to make simple repairs to your front teeth. This is known as aesthetic bonding, or composite bonding. Patients love this process because it is generally much less expensive than dental veneers or crowns. Aesthetic bonding is a great solution, it offers a fast, cost efficient, temporary fix, that may last you a handful of years. It does not last as long as dental veneers or crowns and does not offer the same strength, but is a wonderful alternative when needed.

We are happy to answer any questions you have about dental fillings, amalgam and composite materials, and bonding. Contact our Portland, OR office at: 971-337-3111
The first step towards a beautiful, healthy smile is to schedule an appointment.
