At Raynald Michel DDS, tooth-colored fillings, or composite resins, are an excellent alternative to silver or amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are often durable and are a good fit for small to mid-size fillings that can withstand the stress that comes from chewing. If you need a tooth filled, you can opt for it to appear natural by getting a composite filling. Since Dr. Michel has to blend the shade to match your existing teeth, the process may take a little longer than amalgam fillings.
Tooth-Colored Fillings Are a Popular Choice
More and more patients are opting for tooth-colored composite fillings in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Not only are they durable, but they also look more natural and appealing. Many of our patients are happy with their composite fillings, but it is essential to keep your teeth healthy to prevent further cavities.
Prevention Is Your Best Medicine
While Dr. Michel has the means to help any dentistry need, we still believe that the best cavity is no cavity. We strongly believe that prevention is the best way to avoid cavities or other dental procedures. Our patients can decrease their odds of getting cavities by merely practicing the following:
- Brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes
- Floss daily

- Visit the dentist twice a year
