    Tooth Colored Fillings in 
Anchorage, Alaska

    If you have ever had a large amalgam filling, you may have felt self conscious about the way that it looked. Many of us have been there, and we know what it feels like to feel as if everyone’s gaze is immediately drawn to the big silver spot in your teeth. The good news is that here at Delaney Park Dental, our dental practice in Anchorage provides tooth colored fillings and we can even replace your old amalgams so that you can be confident in your smile!

    Composite tooth colored fillings are a major advancement in dental health from the old silver amalgam fillings that many dentists used to use. People prefer the white filling that blends into your tooth over the silver filling that lets everyone see that you had tooth decay at some point, and it is probably pretty clear why.

    What is a Composite Tooth Filling?

    Composite is made of plastic and ceramic and it bonds to your tooth as your dentist builds it up and tries to get a perfect match to what your tooth was before. This allows your dentist to repair decay after removing the bacteria, and it also allows chipped teeth to be repaired quite easily.

    Up until about 10 or 15 years ago, amalgam was still pretty common, but now most dentists have moved on to composites because they look better, work better, and are better for you health wise.

    healthy smile, happy you

    Do Tooth Colored Fillings Work as Well as Silver Fillings?

    Many people wonder if tooth colored fillings actually work as well as amalgam fillings, or whether they just look better aesthetically. Many of our patients are surprised to find out that tooth colored fillings actually work better than amalgam fillings.

    The composite material bonds to the surface of your tooth better which forms a tighter seal (less space for bacteria), and also means that the dentist can preserve more of your natural tooth. So not only does it look significantly better, it also works better too. Win, win!

    Am I Right for Composite Fillings?

    How Do I Know if I am a Good Candidate for Composite Fillings?

    If you have tooth decay that can reasonably be restored with a filling, you are a good candidate for composite fillings. If your old amalgam fillings are small enough that they can be removed without getting too close to the root, you are a good candidate for composite fillings.

    In short, if you have anything on your tooth that can be restored with a filling rather than a crown, an inlay, or an onlay, you are a good candidate for tooth colored fillings.

    I was nervous to commit to a new dentist for work I needed done representing a significant out of pocket financial investment. There are a lot of providers in Anchorage who offer the same service and aside from online reviews it can be difficult to vet them with confidence. After making a few calls and speaking to different practices I decided on Delaney Dental based on the quality of consultation and the price. I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Miles and his staff. They were kind, non-judgemental, and professional. Everyone was responsive to my questions and requests over the 5 month treatment plan period and I’m very happy with the final outcome. Highly recommend.

    Delaney Dental took over Greg Stone’s practice several years ago. I am as happy, if not more, with Delaney as I was for 30+ years with Stone’s office! Fabulous staff, caring professionals, and I feel welcome and appreciated as a patient. Thanks Doc Miles and Team! Special shout outs to Kelly, my outstanding hygienist, and Colleen, who hails from Stone’s practice! You guys rock!!
