These days, people are keeping their natural teeth longer than ever, and Dr. Drake wants your smile to serve you well throughout life - long into your golden years. When teeth need repairs, we employ the latest techniques and all-white materials to give patients a comfortable experience and natural-looking result. If your smile has extensive wear, we can rejuvenate your appearance and oral health with tooth-colored fillings. Modern dental innovations allow us to give patients a beautiful, durable, and healthy smile.
What about Amalgams?
For years, dentists used amalgam fillings to restore a decayed tooth. Although amalgams served their purpose, they gave teeth a dark metal appearance. Furthermore, amalgams contain mercury, and many people speculate that this harmful heavy metal could cause health concerns. If you prefer amalgams, we can certainly accommodate you. However, for a more natural looking and metal-free alternative, consider composite resin fillings.
Composite Fillings Maintain Your Smile's Integrity
The new standard for cavity restoration, tooth-colored fillings protect the health and beauty of a smile. Dr. Drake tints liquid composite resin to match the damaged tooth so that the filling virtually disappears. Composite fillings actually bond to the tooth, so they don't change shape and will last for years. Furthermore, they don't contain mercury or any other metal.
