Outstanding! I went for a wisdom teeth consultation. From front desk to the room, the staff were very friendly and made me feel welcomed. Dr. Tibbs, also helped me very well to understand what was going on with my wisdom teeth.

Dr. Tibbs is the best! I had a couple of bad experiences prior to a friend recommending Dr. Tibbs 15 yrs ago, but I have been extremely pleased w/all the work he & his team have done. He has a fantastic bedside manner & is a very talented dentist! Look no further.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

You may take excellent care of your teeth and commit to routine dental visits and conscientious oral hygiene, but you still may get a cavity. If you do, correcting the problem as soon as possible is essential to protect the tooth and prevent further damage.

At the office of Jeffrey J. Tibbs, DDS, our goal is to support your goal of excellent oral health by offering affordable, conservative dental treatments. Using advanced materials like tooth-colored composite fillings, we can create a durable repair to preserve the tooth and blend beautifully with your natural teeth.

Why We Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings 

Until a few years ago, dentists had only two options for filling teeth. One was unnatural looking white material and the other was silver (amalgam) fillings. Today, state-of-the-art dental materials allow us to create a seamless restoration that is indistinguishable from your natural teeth. 

We choose tooth-colored composite fillings at our Winston-Salem dental office for a number of reasons: 

Natural-Looking Appearance

The composite filling material is made of glass and resin particles, and the result is very similar in appearance to dental enamel. We can shade the material to perfectly match surrounding dental enamel. When the process is complete, even you might not be able to detect where your tooth ends and the filling begins! 

On the other hand, silver amalgam fillings create a dark spot in your bright smile. As they age, these fillings also tend to discolor, making your teeth appear darker. 

Cosmetic Benefits

Tooth-colored fillings blend beautifully with your smile, making them a conservative option for addressing certain esthetic problems as well, including: 

  • Filling in chipped teeth
  • Evening out gaps and spacing between teeth
  • Repairig cracked or broken teeth
  • Improving the shape of poorly proportioned teeth 

Structural Integrity

When placing a composite filling, we don’t need to remove a lot of existing structure since we bond the material directly to your tooth. This secure bond strengthens and restores the tooth.

Amalgam fillings require us to remove a lot of your tooth structure to place the filling, and the material sits in this space, held in place by anchors created in the tooth. Over the years, the amalgam breaks down and starts pulling away from your tooth, creating a space for bacteria to enter and cause further damage to the tooth. 

Please Call Us to Learn More

Patients at our Winston-Salem, NC dental office prefer composite filings because they like the clean and natural appearance and avoid the issues created by amalgam fillings. We choose them because they are another excellent tool we can offer for improving your oral health and protecting your smile conservatively.
