Dental Fillings

If you have old fillings made from the silver/mercury amalgams used to fill teeth years ago, you may want to regain a youthful-looking smile by replacing those with composite resin fillings. The amalgam fillings, even in the back of your mouth, don’t portray a young, healthy smile the same way that uniformly colored teeth do. Additionally, if you’re concerned about the safety of the silver/mercury amalgam, you may want to talk with Dr. Hodge about replacing these fillings with composites.

Fillings are more frequently being created from composite resins, which are tooth-colored and difficult to distinguish from natural teeth. Today’s dental fillings are being made out of more durable materials, usually a combination of resin and glass or quartz to repair teeth in a way that creates a natural looking smile.

Can I Replace My Old Dental Fillings?

Ask Dr. Hodge for more information on composite fillings to determine if your amalgam fillings can be replaced without compromising the strength and function of your teeth.

Update: I just had a cap replaced today. My previous cap was put in by a different dentist and it was giving me some problems. I’m so glad Hodge replaced it. This new cap is so smooth, it’s smaller than the old cap which really reduces the pain, and... it’s just where it needs to be to make a good bite, but avoid grinding. Hodge really is an amazing craftsman. I’m so glad I found him.Hodge is great. His staff is friendly and thorough. He discusses what he is doing so there are no surprises. There are blankets. The anesthesiologist asks all the right questions and gets it right the first time. Your jaw might hurt for being open for so long, but they will do a good job and it's worth it.read more
