Natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin were created as an alternative to traditional metal fillings. Composite fillings are solid, durable, and offer attractive results. With composite fillings, you will also avoid the mercury found in traditional metal fillings.
Dr. Mosby customizes composite fillings to match the color of your teeth, so the repairs blend with your existing smile. You won't need to worry about unsightly dark fillings or the leaks and cracks that often occur with metal fillings. Dr. Mosby places only composite fillings because he considers them the safest options for our patients.
When your tooth develops large areas of decay, a filling might not fix the problem. Dr. Mosby may choose an inlay, onlay, or crown instead. Designed to restore more of the tooth, inlays and onlays are like puzzle pieces that Dr. Mosby places into the holes created by decay. A crown, also called a cap, fits over your whole tooth, strengthening and protecting the remaining tooth structure.
To begin, Dr. Mosby will carefully reshape your existing tooth to remove decay and bacteria and so that he can snugly fit the restoration. After Dr. Mosby prepares the tooth, he will take a mold and send it to a dental laboratory where a ceramist will create your custom crown. During the fabrication of your new crown, you will wear a temporary crown. When you return to our office, Dr. Mosby will position the permanent crown, make any adjustments, and cement it over your tooth.
