Dental Fillings Hold A Special Place In Dentistry

Dental fillings keep your mouth safe from the further spread of tooth decay and bacterial infection. This is possible because the part of a tooth that’s been affected by decay is removed. Then the healthy tooth enamel that’s left behind will be used to give a dental filling something to bond with so the filling stays firmly in place. That seals the hole, or cavity, and prevents any more spreading of that decay. All of this is amazing stuff, right?

Unfortunately, there is a downside to this treatment. You see, many dentists in the area still rely on metal-based fillings that are conspicuous and distracting, at best. Everyone will notice you’ve had a dental problem because the evidence is visible every time you open your mouth to speak, eat, or smile. That won’t be make for a gorgeous grin at all. However, we can do better than that for you.

Our Fillings Will Look Completely Natural

In earlier eras of dentistry, you didn’t have much of a choice when it came to the materials used to fill a cavity. You were stuck with whatever was available. Often, the solution was to go with gold fillings or amalgam, which was a mix of different metals that resulted in a dark, silvery filling. The takeaway is that dental fillings of the past were unsightly and distracting, even if they got the basic job done. That’s all changed around here, though, thanks to the more modern composite fillings! We’re now able to remove the decay and fill your cavity with a composite resin that’s matched to your natural tooth color, so your restorative treatment won’t leave any visible evidence behind. At our office, you never have to sacrifice a great-looking smile for a healthy one. The only thing you have to do is entrust your smile needs to us!
