Resin Restorations at Kraklow Family Dentistry
Resin restorations at Kraklow Family Dentistry are performed by Dr. Donna Kraklow for patients living in the Waukesha and Milwaukee areas of Wisconsin.

Resin restorations are used to repair teeth with cavities and teeth that have been broken, cracked, or given a root canal to remove decay or tooth pulp.
Resin Restorations Near Me With Tooth-Colored Fillings
Silver amalgam has long been the material of choice for tooth restorations, but Dr. Kraklow now recommends tooth-colored fillings. These are made from an advanced composite resin that matches your teeth's color and provides an undetectable restoration. Dr. Kraklow applies the resin in layers to shape or fill the tooth and dries and hardens it with an ultraviolet light.
Although silver fillings can make a statement, Dr. Kraklow warns that silver in the front teeth darkens your smile. Amalgam can actually damage your teeth over the long term. That’s because amalgam absorbs moisture, which causes the filling to expand and contract in hot and cold weather.
The same principle that cracks roadways and sidewalks can fracture your tooth. Your silver filling can also undergo metal fatigue, corrosion, and leaking, which destroys the protective seal of resin restorations and results in bacteria getting inside, which can trigger a new round of tooth decay.
