4 Benefits of Composite Resin Fillings
Blend In With Your Teeth
Dr. Bailey can skillfully match the shade of your composite resin filling to your natural tooth. Metal-colored gold or amalgam fillings, made from a mixture of silver, zinc, and mercury, can be highly noticeable when you laugh, talk, or smile.
Contain No Metal
Some people are allergic to fillings made from amalgam. In other cases, our patients simply prefer not to place metal in their bodies.
Gold fillings can be costly and may not be covered by insurance. Plans differ, but our affordable composite resin fillings are usually covered. We also offer financing options to help you manage any out-of-pocket fees.
Dr. Bailey can use resin fillings to repair teeth affected by cavities, cracks, chips, or wear from grinding.
Our Knoxville Patients Love Their 5-Star Smiles
WOW!!! I had the best experience at Dr. Baileys office. From the beginning calling into the office Charlotte was such a delight. When I arrived at my appointment I waited less than 3 minutes. My hygienist was very thorough. She made sure to examine and hear all of my concerns. The Hygienist was so knowledgeable & friendly. efficient. After my cleaning, I was scheduled for a filling immediately after seeing the dentist. The dentist was very through and quick. I will always choose Dr. Baileys office.View on Google
Best dentist experience ever! I moved to Knoxville for school a couple of years ago and had not seen a dentist for a couple of years. Dr. Sliger is so nice and made me feel very comfortable the whole time, checking on me every so often to make sure I was still doing alright. She is also very gentle and I barely felt the injection! I could not be happier with the front desk staff and techs, everyone was so kind and welcoming and I know I’ve found my permanent dentist in Knoxville!View on Google

- Dr. Bailey has practiced dentistry for over 40 years and has provided first-class care to Knoxville area patients since 1982.
- Conservative Treatment
- Unless absolutely necessary, Dr. Bailey will only remove a small portion of damaged dental tissue in order to repair a tooth with a filling.
