Restoring Teeth to a Natural Appearance Composite & Tooth-Colored Fillings

Chapel Hill Tooth Colored Fillings Services

Composite & Tooth-Colored Fillings

Do you have teeth filled with metal amalgams? Do your teeth look gray? Return your smile to health… and a natural appearance with the help of Chapel Hill dentist Dr. Saib.

At Chapel Hill Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Saib never uses metal amalgams to fill teeth. Instead, he uses composite or tooth-colored fillings.

Why? Composite and tooth-colored fillings are far more attractive, safer and stronger than their metal counterparts.

Composite and tooth-colored fillings don’t require a lot of tooth preparation (i.e. drilling) because they are bonded to the teeth. As a result, much of your healthy tooth structure remains intact.

Metal, on the other hand, requires that much of the tooth structure be removed before the metal filling is placed. Even more alarming, the metal filling reacts to temperature changes in your mouth, expanding when exposed to heat (coffee, tea, etc.) and contracting when exposed to cold (ice cream, a cold drink, etc.). This constant movement can cause the tooth to fracture or break. It also creates space between the filling and tooth wall, allowing dangerous bacteria to get in and cause undetected decay.

Tooth colored and composite fillings are made of biocompatible materials that are safe for your body and the environment – they don’t contain any mercury! They not only restore the tooth to health, they return it to strength, as well. But perhaps most importantly, they look completely natural and virtually disappear in your tooth. No one will know that you’ve had your teeth restored; they’ll remain white, gleaming and healthy!

If you have a mouth full of metal fillings talk to Dr. Saib about replacing those with white fillings. You will be amazed at the difference in your smile’s appearance. Call 919.933.3388 if we can answer any questions for you.

  • I have visited more dental chairs than I want to recall. Never have I felt as comfortable at a dentist office as I do at Dr. Saib’s office. Everyone there makes you feel so comfortable. I wish I knew of Dr. Saib years ago. Dr. Saib was the first dentist that told me he was not going to judge me for the condition of my teeth. That says it all…Thank you Dr. Saib for bringing my smile back.

  • Dr. Saib and staff our always professional and friendly and make the bi-annual dentist trip as pleasant as one can be (you know, with people picking and poking in your mouth!). Thorough and considerate health care provider. Would recommend without reservation.

  • Dr. Saib and his staff are simply the best. And believe me, I know. I’ve had to have quite a bit of cosmetic dental work done in the past 20 years. His clam demeanor and obvious skills in color matching, pain management, and creating such a natural look are most appreciated. Dr. Saib listens to your concerns and addresses them. His staff is friendly, professional and welcoming. After all I have been through, I’m so grateful that I found Dr. Saib’s practice. I can smile confidently once again.

  • I love coming to the dentist. My kids love coming to the dentist! Everyone in the office is friendly, shows an interest in my family and me and makes us feel very welcome. Dr. Saib takes a conservative approach to dentistry, never trying to push any treatment, but definitely staying on top of our needs. Recommend highly!

  • My experience at Dr. Saib has been excellent. Dr. Saib and his entire staff are gracious and go out of their way to make me feel welcome and appreciated. I have many choices of local dentists but I choose to drive an hour each way to see Dr. Saib. That’s how much I think of his service.

  • Dr. Saib and all of his staff are wonderful! Everyone is very friendly and caring. I have been going to him as my general dentist for the past 10 years. He is a great dentist and very thorough! I recently decided to fix my teeth cosmetically. I had been unhappy with my teeth for a long time. Using veneers Dr. Saib made my teeth look natural and beautiful! He clearly loves doing cosmetic dentistry and does amazing work. It is very important to him that the patient is satisfied and that the teeth look great in the end. No strangers have noticed that my teeth have veneers on them, which is great and means they look very natural, but someone (who didn’t know I had gotten veneers) did comment when we were taking pictures at a party that I have a beautiful smile and look ready for bridal photos at my upcoming wedding. Thank you so much to everyone in the office! It was a great experience and I am very happy with my smile!
