Tooth decay is such a common oral health problem that it affects patients of all ages. If left untreated, it can seriously compromise the health and strength of a tooth. An untreated cavity can also have a dramatic effect on your overall health and well-being.

Dr. Makram uses tooth-colored fillings in North Naples to help his patients quickly treat decay. With a tooth-colored filling, we can improve the health and beauty of your decayed tooth simultaneously.

Why Choose Mark Makram DDS for Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-Colored Fillings vs. Amalgam Fillings

For well over 100 years, dentists used silver amalgam fillings, which are about 50% mercury, to treat decay. In recent years, however, there’s been much debate over the safety of amalgam fillings. It hasn’t been scientifically proven that amalgam fillings are harmful, but our Naples dental office has chosen to use tooth-colored fillings instead. Not only do tooth-colored fillings look more natural, they provide teeth with better insulation from hot and cold, and they can be repaired more easily.

During your procedure, Dr. Makram will prepare your tooth, in some cases using air abrasion to gently remove decay. Then, he’ll apply a small amount of filling material that’s been shaded to match your natural tooth color. This material will then be cured and shaped for beautiful results that will last for years to come.

Dental Inlays & Onlays

For more advanced cases of decay, Dr. Makram may suggest treatment with an inlay or onlay. Inlays and onlays are made of porcelain or composite resin to strengthen and protect teeth while blending seamlessly with your existing smile.
