Dental Fillings 75080

Formerly, our dental fillings 75080, are specialised in dental amalgam and silver fillings to fill tooth decay caused cavities. Because of the relatively high concentration of powdered copper, tin, and silver alongside liquid mercury within the silver fillings, the chances of mercury poisoning were at an all time high. This was the industry standard until scientists thought of a new substance which would replace the traditional silver fillings. White fillings, also known as composite fillings, were introduced and took the world of dentistry by storm by removing the high possibility of mercury poisoning related to dental amalgam.

The now mercury free White fillings are made purely of a plastic and glass mixture, no need for heavy and potentially toxic metals. White fillings have been established not only as just fillings but have also found their use in cosmetic dentistry such as smile enhancement. In addition to the white fillings filling cavities, they also considerably strengthen the structure of teeth due to the plastic and glass composite binding itself to them. Small cavities can be filled and maintenance procedures such as changing the filling can be carried out with ease when necessary. Due to the nature of the material used, spotting and fixing decay is very easy. The composite is also highly thermally resistant.

White fillings are extremely durable and with proper routine checkups that will check for any early signs of decay or bacteria that could be considered harmful, they can last for around 8-10 years if taken care of properly. Regular cleaning, brushing, and flossing of the teeth are advised as always regardless of state of teeth. With white fillings, you can enhance that very special something in your smile.

Just a few of the advantages of white fillings are:

  • • White fillings which are done at North Richardson Dentistry in Dallas Texas, unlike the previously used silver fillings, strengthen the teeth instead of weakening them structurally.
  • • In order to keep more of the tooth intact, our dentist 75080 can make much smaller holes in the teeth to allow the filling composite to flow in.
  • • As previously mentioned, due to the nature of the filling, if it becomes damaged it can be very easily changed.
  • • After the filling is in place, it is considerably easier to spot and treat potential decay.
  • • Much smaller cavities can be fixed with great ease and there is no need to wait for a cavity to increase in size before it can be treated accordingly.
  • • White fillings are very durable and can last for the span of 8-10 years.
  • • The fillings are completely thermally resistant which adds to their durability.
  • • White fillings made of the plastic and glass composite can withstand extreme temperatures and insulate the tooth.
  • • The fillings tend to look much more natural and aesthetically pleasing compared to the old silver or amalgam fillings. This allows for a more beautiful and natural smile.
  • • The teeth with the fillings are more solid structurally due to the composite binding itself to them thus preventing future breakage.


★★★★★ What a great dentist office and staff they have at Dr Thompsons. I have avoided going to the dentist for a very long time which is a bad thing. After my 1st visit with Dr Thompson and his staff, I finally understood that it doesn't have to be a bad or scary thing to go to the dentist. Well, my years of neglecting my teeth meant that I needed major work done. Luckily, they offer a financing program that is allowing me to pay off the work that I had done with interest free monthly payments. If you've been looking for a dentist that will eliminate your fears, do great work and has a kind and friendly staff, make an appointment at Dr Fred Thompsons office. You can thank me later.
