Composite Fillings

When you need a tooth repair, you do not want visible evidence left behind to mar your smile. Metal fillings can change the appearance of your teeth, leaving them gray and discolored. With white composite fillings, you can have quality dental repairs without the noticeable metal left on your teeth. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we are happy to offer composite fillings for dental repairs and cosmetic dentistry procedures to help improve the health and beauty of your smile.

Composite fillings offer similar results of metal or amalgam fillings without the ugly metal appearance. When tooth material needs to be replaced, composite fillings can be color-matched to your tooth and used to repair the surface. Amalgam was the most common filling type for many years. Due to the metal appearance and concerns about the mercury they contain, many people are opting for composite fillings. These white fillings are safe and durable, while matching the color of your smile.

What is a Composite Resin?

White fillings are made from composite resin, a substance made from a specialized mixture of plastics and glass components. The composite resin used today is more durable. It can be used to repair or fill even back molars that were once only filled with amalgam. The resin is soft and applied to the tooth in layers. Each layer is hardened to create a durable tooth-like material using a special light. Composite resin fillings and tooth repairs can last for many years and retain their white appearance.

Composite dental resin is used for many tooth repairs and cosmetic procedures. This versatile substance can repair chipped teeth, replace old metal fillings or even cover dental flaws. Other advantages of composite resin are that it is affordable and only takes one visit to put in place. It is a painless procedure and can be used in a variety of ways to improve the beauty of your smile. Contact our office today to learn more about composite resin and fillings.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
