Even with the best oral hygiene, cavities happen. Left untreated, dental decay can have serious effects on your smile.
At Dental Haus Germantown, we provide fillings that are more conservative, longer-lasting, and more attractive than metal fillings.

What are composite fillings and what are the treatment benefits?
Natural-LookingTraditional fillings consist of a metal amalgam that is very noticeable. In contrast, the dental material that is used for white fillings resembles natural dental tissue so closely, it even has applications in cosmetic dentistry.
ConservativeThe best way to preserve your oral health is to remove as little natural tooth structure as possible. Composite resin bonds more easily with a tooth than metal, allowing us to preserve more of your natural dental tissue.
Metal amalgam expands and contracts when exposed to heat and cold. Over time, this can cause hairline cracks in an otherwise healthy tooth. Most of these patients will eventually require an inlay or onlay (a larger type of filling) or a porcelain dental crown to protect their oral health.
