Composite Fillings with Dr. Shlafer

Tooth-Colored Fillings


Composite (or tooth-colored) fillings are safer and more attractive than traditional amalgam fillings and are a popular option for our patients. Metals respond to temperature changes by shrinking and swelling, so metal fillings often cause tooth sensitivity to heat and cold. They also necessitate removal of more of your natural tooth to accommodate compression and expansion. Some patients can experience allergic reactions to metals used in the fillings as well.

Patients choose composite fillings because they do not carry the health hazards of traditional amalgam fillings. Since the durable porcelain material is not affected by heat or cold, less tooth structure is removed when your tooth is prepared. Composite fillings blend flawlessly with your natural teeth, making them an attractive alternative. Although composite fillings are slightly more expensive than traditional fillings, our patients find them to be worth the investment.

"Dr. Shlafer became my dentist 2 years ago when my fiance at the time recommended I use his dentist. From the initial consultation, I knew Dr Shlafer would be my long term dentist. Dr Shalfer and his team were very thorough which showed that they truly cared about my dental health. I highly recommend Dr. Shlafer."
