COMPOSITE (TOOTH-COLORED) FILLINGS
When a tooth develops a smaller cavity, it can be restored with a white tooth colored filling. Or perhaps you desire to change out your ugly old silver mercury fillings. Composite fillings are a conservative treatment choice to restore decayed teeth or to update your older fillings.
HOW LONG DO COMPOSITE FILLINGS LAST?
“All dental restorations have a lifespan. With composite fillings, they normally don’t have to be replaced because of the filling, but rather a problem with the tooth surrounding it. Restored teeth can still get another cavity. Proper home care is very important in extending the lifespan of your composite fillings.”
DO I NEED AN INLAY OR AN ONLAY?
A tooth may also need to be filled or covered with a porcelain material as an alternative to composite fillings. A porcelain filling is made by our dental laboratory and requires just two visits. We may recommend a porcelain filling versus a composite filling depending on the size and location of the cavity and the extent of the cavity on the tooth. These restorations are commonly called onlays or inlays.

IN-OFFICE PROFESSIONAL TOOTH BLEACHING
“Professional tooth bleaching is one of the easiest and
most cost effective ways to improve your smile.”
Unlike store bought whiteners that only remove surface stains from your teeth, professional bleaching actually changes the color of your teeth internally. In-office KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching reverses the aged appearance of a darker smile leaving you with a brighter whiter younger looking smile.

- KöR Whitening is so effective; it is the only recognized system in the world that will even whiten tetracycline (dark) stained teeth, previously thought to be impossible.
- With easy periodic at-home maintenance your teeth will stay white permanently, even while you continue to drink red wine, tea, coffee, etc.
- During the whitening process nearly all patients experience only low to typically no teeth sensitivity.
This procedure is comfortable and 100% safe for your teeth and gums. The result is a radiantly white, natural appearing smile that you will LOVE! It’s perfect for everyone, from age 14 to 90!
