Replace Unsightly Silver-Mercury Fillings At Comprehensive Dental Care

Tooth-colored "resin" fillings by Dr. Marx

For over 100 years, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth.  The only other alternative was gold and that was too expensive for most folks.

Now, at Comprehensive Dental Care, there is a new and economical way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings.  The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix.  Dr. Marx bonds the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light.  This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.

Once completed by Dr. Marx, your tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth.  Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings.  Resin restorations can range from $150 to $350 per tooth.

Please call us at Comprehensive Dental Care with any questions you may have about the benefits of resin restorations.
