Do you recall what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, the people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. The metal fillings you probably got with that first cavity changed all that. But at Durham Dental Group, we offer white fillings.
The replacement of metal fillings with composite fillings that match the color of your teeth is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure that can transform a smile as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.
Composite fillings are made of a mixture of glass or quartz and resin, which results in a natural tooth-colored material. They are quite durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.
Of course, we advocate regular brushing and flossing, and don’t want any of our patients to have any new cavities. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages over silver, the preparation requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure.
Many patients want to replace their existing silver fillings with composite white fillings. If this interests you, please give our office a call. At Durham Dental Group our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment today!
