Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay may cause further complications, such as pain or infection. If you have tooth decay, we may recommend a filling to help prevent further decay and preserve the tooth.
Mount Auburn Dental is mercury-free and has placed no silver/amalgam fillings in more than 20 years. Dr. Helmkamp and our team use composite fillings as a safe, effective, and aesthetic alternative to traditional metal fillings.
Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. We gently remove any decayed tissue and use the resin to support tooth structure and help prevent further damage.
We can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. To request an appointment, contact Mount Auburn Dental.
