Like most people, you probably have a filling or two in your mouth due to decay. Fillings are what dentists use to treat cavities. Both silver amalgam and composite fillings are effective in treating decay, closing gaps in teeth, and restoring your oral health. However, if you prefer a discreet treatment, you can’t beat composite tooth-colored fillings. You can obtain composite dental fillings at Bella Hanono DDS Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Most people choose composite fillings because of their natural-looking appearance. These tooth-colored fillings blend well with your teeth, so it doesn’t appear like you’ve had cavity treatment when you smile. Composite resin is a durable material that bonds well with your teeth and can withstand the pressure of chewing and grinding food. This makes composite fillings an effective cavity treatment for both your front and back teeth.
If you want affordable dental fillings that stop decay, resist fractures and provide you with years of cavity protection, you can’t go wrong with composite fillings. These fillings don’t require as much drilling as silver amalgam fillings, which helps preserve more of your natural tooth. Composite fillings are metal and mercury-free and pose no risk to your gums or teeth. Your entire restoration can be completed in one dental visit, giving you the necessary cavity protection.
Although filling cavities is the main purpose of composite fillings, they can also be used for dental bonding treatments. Dr. Bella Hanono can use composite resin material to repair minor chips and cracks in your teeth, shore up worn teeth, as a filler for receding gums, or as a composite tooth gap filling. If you have unsightly gaps in your smile, composite fillings can “close” those gaps to give your smile a more pleasing appearance. In the process, the resin material strengthens your tooth structure to protect your teeth from chips or cracks in the future.
