Tooth fillings in Nashua are the most common dental restoration. That doesn’t mean our dentist hasn’t put a lot of thought into them. We use fillings made of sturdy, tooth-colored resin composite instead of traditional metal fillings. That’s because resin fillings offer so many benefits. Among them:

So, still today, patients still present, and still have cavities in teeth. That's part of what we deal with every day. What's really nice about the tooth-colored fillings that we do is that they're bonded to the teeth, so we don't have to remove any more tooth structure than we need to place it. We can remove the decay very conservatively, and then replace it with a tooth-colored material, which patients want. I don't have many patients who come in and request,
- Natural Appearance. Resin fillings are practically invisible in your mouth. No more gray or black fillings to mar your smile!
- Less Modification of Teeth. Our doctors don’t need to remove as much tooth structure to place a resin filling, so you are less likely to need a more extensive restoration like a dental crown in the future.
- No Health Concerns. While there is no conclusive proof, some studies have linked the mercury used in amalgam fillings to health problems.

Prevent Further Dental Damage
If we find a cavity during your regular dental exam, we can go ahead and place a tooth filling at that appointment. We pride ourselves on our flexibility, which allows us to deal with dental issues right away instead of making you schedule a second visit.
Small cavities can quickly become much larger areas of decay. If that happens, you’ll need a more complex and costly restoration like a dental inlay or onlay, or even a dental crown. So tooth fillings can save you time, hassle, and expense.
Your Filling Procedure Will Feel Totally Comfortable
Because a tooth filling sometimes involves the soft pulp inside your tooth, we’ll thoroughly numb the area with a local anesthetic. We never want you to feel any discomfort! To further soothe you, we can offer:
- Music to distract you while we work
- Blankets to take away any chill
- Pillows to keep your head and neck comfortable
- Dental sedation to completely relax any anxious nerves
