Composite Fillings

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings.

Smiles for Life

We are excited to announce that we participate in:

From March 1 through June 30, hundreds of dental practices throughout the United States and Canada professionally whiten teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in their local communities and around the world. They are members of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams who are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their communities through charitable work.

 

HOW AT-HOME TEETH WHITENING WORKS:

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO WHITEN THE STAINS IN YOUR SMILE, it is always safer and more effective to choose a professional teeth whitening system under the direction of a dentist. We, as a participating Smile For Life dentist, are offering at-home teeth whitening systems. The media is flooded with advertisements for do-it-yourself remedies, but some of these treatments can be damaging to your teeth and ineffective at fully whitening. With Smiles For Life, you can enjoy a professional at-home teeth whitening system under the care of us while making a difference in the life of a child.

 

At-Home Teeth Whitening Procedure:

A dental cleaning and oral exam are both recommended prior to professional teeth whitening. WE can help you determine whether you qualify and are a candidate for at-home teeth whitening.

After your initial consultation with us and we find you are a candidate, you will be fitted with custom-molded teeth whitening trays and given a teeth whitening formula. With Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems, the tooth whitening formula is applied directly to the whitening trays, which are worn nightly or daily, respectively, until the desired shade is reached. The teeth whitening formula contains active ingredients, which slowly penetrate through the tooth enamel and bleach out any stains. Length of treatment varies depending on the current tooth shade and post-op visits will help determine the length of time needed to achieve the desired results.

When you choose US, (participants with Smiles For Life) for your at-home teeth whitening system, 100% of your teeth whitening cost goes towards benefiting children locally and all over the world.
