Serenity Family Dentistry – Fillings

We brush twice a day. We floss (or we tell our dentists that we do.) Even with daily care, our teeth can be susceptible to cavities. Teeth can crack and fracture.

When repairing teeth, we also want to maintain a natural looking smile with fillings that won’t be obvious.

Here at Serenity Family Dentistry in Charlotte, we’re ready to welcome you to our office and talk to you about whether you need fillings.

Metal-Free and Tooth-Colored Fillings

Traditionally, fillings have been made with a very durable silver composite. This amalgam and can take a lot of pressure. Typically you’ll find the silver fillings in the back of the mouth on the wider stronger molars.

Today, many of the filling composites are made of ceramic and plastic compounds and give a more natural blend and appearance in your smile. Metal-free fillings have come a long way in providing dental stability in repairing damaged teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are also a version of the new composite fillings and can be matched and to blend with your existing smile. This composite is applied in layers and then cured with light.

What Type of Fillings Do I Need?

Depending on endurance, strength, and performance, our team at Serenity Family Dentistry may recommend a few options for your fillings. Your options may depend on:

  • Composites used
  • Where the filling will be set
  • How much tooth damage has occurred
  • Chewing needs for the damaged tooth
  • Restoration time including recurring office visits

At Serenity Family Dentistry, we want to see your smile.

Through regularly scheduled dental checkups, we can spot a cavity before it becomes too severe. If you notice a tooth fracture, call us before the damage worsens.

Call us today at (704) 800-6695 to see if talk to our dentists to talk about your fillings. To schedule a consultation, register for an appointment.

At Serenity Family Dentistry in Charlotte, we are creating beautiful smiles with a gentle touch.

Our Happy Customers

"I had my first crown put in this past month. SFD, was forever patient as I was dealing with a cough, and continually had to ask to stop for a moment. The team is kind, sweet, and very thorough in explaining what's going on, and the costs, before any work begins. We were honestly thinking of finding a dentist closer to our home, but the staff at SFD has made this drive worth it for my family."

Jim Jim

"Dr. Attaway and her team are thorough and compassionate. They explain procedures and reasons for treatment plans recommended. I was a patient of this clinic prior to Dr. Attaway's arrival, and am pleased that Debbie and Laura are still there, and the new additions are also very nice."

Erin Erin

"Debbie is a great and personable hygienist and Dr. Attaway is gentle and kind. They were very honest with me about my teeth and how I should take care of them. Dr. Attaway even recommended a new mouth wash so that I could hopefully avoid a cavity. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist."
