White Composite Fillings
Our beautiful composite fillings at Wagner Dentistry in Las Vegas are colored to match your unique teeth. They blend in with the natural part of the tooth to give you a vibrant smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are a conservative way to protect the teeth and improve their structure. Las Vegas dentists, Drs. Wade and Wayne Wagner, can use custom composite fillings to:
- Restore small to medium sized cavities
- Restore a cavity on a front tooth
- Restore a chip on a front tooth
The primary benefit of composite fillings is their safety level. With no risk of tooth discoloration or other undesirable effects from metal fillings, white fillings are safer and also bio-compatible and nontoxic.
Traditional cavity fillings are usually composed of mercury and silver combined with other metals. All of these substances can be harmful, even poisonous, to the body. These metals can have an adverse effect on your health by emitting electrical currents throughout the mouth and body. When you choose tooth-colored composite fillings, you protect your bodily health and the natural appearance of your smile.
Amalgam Filling Removal
Here at Wagner Dentistry, we can remove silver fillings in a safe and comfortable fashion. Silver fillings tend to expand and contract in different temperatures, which can break the teeth. The metals in amalgam fillings can also seep into the adjacent teeth, creating stains and discolorations that are difficult to remove. This is why we only use composite resin at our practice and why we believe it is important to have amalgam fillings removed and replaced with tooth-colored fillings.
