Treat Your Cavities and Restore Your Smile with Tooth-colored Composite Fillings
Brushing and flossing your teeth daily are the best ways to prevent cavities. However, sometimes cleaning all the surfaces of your mouth, especially your molars, can be mission impossible. As a result, food particles may accumulate in your teeth, causing tooth cavities.
While Dr. Paige Woods offers numerous preventive dental care services to thwart cavities; she is ready to treat your cavity if it forms. Our practice uses metal-free composite fillings to treat small to medium-sized cavities and minor tooth defects.
Benefits of tooth-colored fillings
Years back, amalgam fillings were the go-to procedure for cavity treatment. However, many dentists have ditched the silver-colored fillings for safer and more natural-looking composite fillings. But why the move? White fillings offer numerous benefits over their metal counterparts. Some include:
- They are aesthetically appealing
- The composite filling procedure is conservative
- They don’t contain harmful substances, like mercury in metal fillings
- White fillings don’t contract or expand as temperatures change
- They are ideal for patients allergic to metal
