When a tooth has suffered from a cavity or minor decay, a filling can fully restore it to its natural function and appearance. At Plantation Dental Care, we offer tooth-colored fillings that are made from composite materials.
The standard way to restore teeth from a cavity or minor decay used to be traditional amalgam fillings which are made from a mixture of metals, including silver, copper, mercury and zinc. While traditional amalgam fillings offer excellent strength and restorative properties, they can also be problematic over time. Metal fillings may corrode over time, releasing toxins and exposing your teeth to harmful chemicals. And besides those disadvantages, metal fillings also compromise the look of your smile.
At Plantation Dental Care, we offer tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth from cavities or minor decay. Our tooth-colored fillings are made from a blend of plastics and small glass particles. This combination of materials not only allows us to restore your teeth without compromising the appearance of your smile, but it also offers virtually the same strength, restorative properties, and even last much longer than metal fillings.
With our tooth-colored fillings, people won’t even notice that you have had a restorative treatment on your tooth. Tooth-colored fillings can be applied in only one appointment.
