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.

From the first phone call to setup my first visit, I felt comfortable with Dr. Hodge's office. He was a referral from a friend who had seen him for the first time about 2 years ago. I was embarrassed I had waited so long to see a new Dentist since... moving out of Seattle 10 years ago. But they put me at ease and didn't shame me. They were just glad I had finally made it in.This was probably one of the most thorough first dental visits I've experienced. The technology for doing x-rays was much less painful and quicker than in the past. They continuously tell you what they are doing as they do it, warning you of any potential discomfort you might feel. They're constantly checking in with you to see how you're doing, letting you know they can stop if you need them to. Then they do a great job giving you a thorough report on where things stand with your teeth and gums. If any work is needed, they let you know the order of priority in which they recommend the work be done. The office is very clean and hygienic. It's certainly setup to protect you as much as possible from Covid-19 exposure. Both the Hygienist and Dentist are wonderful and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this dental office!read more
