Dental Filling in Dumas
Dental Restoration for Strong and Natural-Looking Teeth
Our goal at Casa Dental is to provide safe and lasting restorative dentistry so you can enjoy a full and bright smile. Our team in Dumas, TX, offers mercury-free dental fillings to fix the decayed part of a tooth that we had to remove for your health. We also use fillings to repair cracked or worn-down teeth. We use porcelain inlays and tooth-colored restoration (onlays) to design fillings that are not only strong but also match your natural teeth. We ally good dental function for chewing and biting and aesthetics for a confident smile.

Silver Fillings Versus Tooth-Colored Fillings
Silver dental fillings have significant downsides:
- Their edges can weaken and break, which allows cavities to appear again
- They contain 50 percent mercury, which can corrode and leak onto your teeth and gums
Mercury-containing fillings can be safely replaced with tooth-colored restorations where resin onlays create a tighter and safer fit to your natural tooth, restoring the tooth’s strength and appearance. The resin used also contains fluoride which helps to prevent decay. This type of filling is overall healthier.
Replacing Silver Fillings with a Tooth-Colored Restorations
We can replace your silver fillings with tooth-colored restorations. This process requires two appointments. During the first one, we remove the old filling and any additional tooth decay. We make an impression of your teeth to send to the lab for the creation of the resin onlay. We place a temporary onlay on your tooth.
During the second appointment, we remove the temporary onlay and prepare the tooth with a conditioning gel. We then place bonding cement on the tooth and use a high-intensity light to secure the resin to the tooth before polishing it.
This process provides your teeth with a natural look and the tooth-colored restoration makes the treated tooth stronger for many years with proper oral hygiene and routine visits to the dentist.
