Composite Fillings in Lansing
Treat Cavities with Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Do you need help treating one or more cavities? Hagerty Dentistry offers durable and discreet care with composite fillings. Composite fillings are also known as tooth-colored fillings, because they can be tinted to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. Amalgam fillings have a dark, unattractive color, whereas composite fillings blend in to the point that no one will likely even see them.
Another key difference between amalgam fillings and composite fillings is that composite fillings support the tooth's natural structure. That means you can keep more of your natural smile. Amalgam metal fillings also have levels of toxicity that are not supportive of a holistic approach to health; composite fillings are more in line with promoting a safe environment for your body. They are also resistant to hot and cold temperatures, and they won't change shape with repetitive chewing. Amalgam fillings, however, can change shape and even crack, making it possible for bacteria to get inside and cause a new infection or more decay.
