At Hawkins Family Dentistry located in Belpre, Ohio, Dr. Lori Hawkins and our team are pleased to offer cosmetic, tooth-colored dental fillings for our patients seeking to repair a tooth with cavities. A cavity is a hole that has been created by the degradation of tooth enamel. Our cosmetic, tooth-colored dental fillings can fill the hole with a protective resin that can benefit you for many years to come. Consider the following benefits to composite dental fillings:

— Teeth can still suffer breaks and fractures with composites, but because composites are made of a solid, durable resin-based material, they help the teeth become more preventative of damage.

— Composites do not need to be removed if they go bad, as they can be repaired easily without the need to take out the originals.

— Composite fillings can fix cavities that are too small for dental amalgams to work effectively.

— Composite fillings are mercury-free, which is a must-have for those who may be allergic to mercury.

— Composite fillings are designed to mimic the natural aesthetics of your teeth.

— If you take excellent care of your composites, they can easily last up to ten years.

If you have cavities and would like to have them repaired by our Hawkins Family Dentistry team, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Lori Hawkins in Belpre, Ohio by calling 740-423-8416. Fill in your cavities with our cosmetic tooth-colored dental fillings to restore your smile’s beauty!
