At Gorelik Dentistry, we are proud to offer cosmetic dentistry for our patients in Charlotte, North Carolina who want to restore their smiles with a natural-looking appearance. One of the ways we do this is with our exclusively amalgam-free, mercury-free composite dental fillings. These tooth-colored dental fillings are constructed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile for a discreet and natural restoration. This makes these fillings ideal for work done on the front teeth.
By using composite resin fillings, Dr. Julia Gorelik can not only repair worn down, chipped, or broken teeth, but strengthen them in the process. How? Because these strong plastic and glass fillings are bonded directly to the tooth, it preserves much of its structure (unlike their amalgam counterparts). Additionally, the composite resin can be contoured and shaped to give you natural-looking, strong results.
Composite resin fillings have another advantage over amalgam fillings–they don’t react to temperature changes. You can continue eating and drinking your favorite hot or cold foods without the filling contracting or expanding and no worries about fracturing the tooth.
To care for a composite resin tooth, you simply continue brushing and flossing daily to maintain healthy teeth and gums and keep cavities from developing around the filling edges. Combine this daily care with your six-month dental cleanings with Dr. Gorelik, and your composite filling should last for many years.
