Tooth Fillings
in Bentonville, AR

Dental cavities compromise the structure of teeth, which can weaken them and cause chips or cracks. Plaque build-up eats away at the protective enamel around your teeth, and weak or deteriorating teeth are more prone to expose nerve endings and cause pain. It is better to seek care from our experienced and friendly dental team than to risk cavities advancing into more serious issues down the road.

Composite Fillings

Are Composite Fillings Better?

If you prefer a natural look over silver fillings, composite fillings are a popular choice. Our composite resin fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, are ideal for smaller cavities, as these materials effectively withstand moderate pressure from normal chewing. Many of our Bentonville patients prefer tooth-colored composite fillings over metal dental fillings for their esthetic qualities.

The process for fitting composite fillings takes longer than amalgam, as these colors need to match the current tooth color. Composite fillings can also be slightly more expensive than metal or porcelain.

Composite fillings can be less durable than silver amalgam and other types of dental fillings. While no dental filling will last forever, you can expect your fillings to last approximately ten to fifteen years with proper care. Your oral health routine should include:

  • Twice-Daily Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Regular Dental Visits

Our team of dental professionals is happy to discuss the different options available for your next tooth filling in Bentonville, AR. The aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and optimize your oral health.
