We use the white filling material. We don't use any of the silver anymore. Actually, I never have. Last one I placed was in dental school. I think that some of those filling materials are just fine, but the white materials we have now, I feel are as good or better, and there's no reason to place those kinds anymore, in my opinion. We only use the white filling material for traditional fillings.
S&G Family Dentistry is your go-to dentist office for tooth fillings. Dr. Schopper and her expert staff have many years of experience in placing fillings and bringing back smiles to people in and around Leawood.
We primarily use composite resin fillings because they:
- Match your natural tooth color and help you smile with more confidence.
- Bond directly to the tooth, making the tooth stronger.
- Require less tooth shaping before placing, meaning less discomfort for you.
- Can be placed in a single visit without needing to return to our office.
Tooth fillings are one of the most common dental services our patients require. So, in addition to composite, we also offer metal and gold fillings, as well as ceramic inlays and onlays. The choice is yours, and we’ll discuss all these great options with you.
Give our friendly and courteous staff a call today at 913-945-1612. We’ll schedule an appointment for you to get that filling you’ve been putting off! Ask about our early morning appointments.
Say Goodbye to Cavities With Tooth Fillings by S&G’s Expert Staff
Nobody likes to think about getting cavities. They’re usually the result of teeth that have not been cared for with proper brushing and flossing and routine examinations. Bacteria left on the tooth produces acid that eats away at the tooth’s enamel. Eventually, a small hole will form – a cavity.
If left untreated, the cavity may extend to the inner part of the tooth and cause infection. If this happens, you will most likely experience a significant amount of pain and discomfort, especially when chewing.
Come in for a visit, and the dentists at S&G Family Dentistry will comfortably place a tooth filling to protect your tooth against further damage from decay. Call our Leawood office at 913-945-1612.
