Marietta Composite Resin Fillings Completing Smiles

Contact Leading Edge Dentistry today to learn more about our dental services.

If you have a number of silver-colored amalgam fillings, you know how much these restorative solutions impact the appearance of your smile. Leading Edge Dentistry offers a cosmetically superior alternative – composite resin fillings. These fillings are crafted from silicon dioxide and plastic compounds that are shaded to match surrounding teeth.

Composite resin fillings look beautiful, but they also have a number of oral health benefits compared to traditional amalgams, including:

  • The metal-free material means those patients with sensitivities to metallic restorations are able to safely and comfortably correct their smiles
  • Directly bonded to the prepared tooth, composite resin fillings have reduced risks of further decay or loss compared with traditional amalgams that are often damaged as the cement holding them in position breaks down
  • Amalgam materials expand and contract when exposed to changing temperatures. This motion may crack or fracture teeth. Thankfully, composite resin does not have the same reaction, making them more comfortable overall.

Composite resin fillings can be quickly placed in a single appointment. We remove any damaged or decayed tooth enamel and then apply and shape the composite resin. Using a curing light, we harden the tooth-colored filling into position. We can make minimal adjustments to ensure the most natural-feeling correction.

If you’d like to find out more about composite resin fillings or exchanging amalgam fillings for the more cosmetic alternative, contact our team. We’re happy to answer your questions or schedule a consultation visit.

I started with Leading Edge Dentistry last year after 6 years without going to the dentist and a couple of decades of bad dentist experiences. Leading Edge team and Dr. Patel is nice, always smiling, always takes time to explain, and does great work. Her team is always supportive and very knowledgeable and experienced. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and Leading Edge! They have been great to get my teeth back in shape and not dread the dentist.

best of the best. Super friendly and caring staff, and amazing doctor / nurses / hygienists. I used to dread going to the dentist but it doesn't even phase me anymore since going to Leading Edge. Oh and the longest I've EVER waited was maybe 15 minutes and they apologized for running late. Normally it's less than 5 minutes. I recommend this place to everyone!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This office is amazing! When I arrive for my hygiene visits, the front staff is always very friendly! I don’t have to wait long for the hygienist to bring me back and throughout the visit she explains each step. The doctor is very thorough in reviewing the recommended treatment. When I had to have treatment completed- the doctor explained each step of the procedure. The numbing injection was painless and they made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. My whole family (including my 2 kids) does not mind visiting the dentist anymore. Dr. Howard and his team are wonderful!
