Treat areas of decay with tooth-colored fillings
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, area patients who are faced with tooth decay may be unsure as to what treatments are necessary to restore their smiles. Our team, including Dr. Raynald Michel, provides tooth cavity treatments that provide aesthetic repair. This is often achieved using tooth-colored fillings made of a composite resin. Tooth-colored fillings blend into the tooth’s enamel to provide proper filling and sealing of a cavity while remaining beautiful!
What are tooth-colored dental fillings?
Dr. Michel describes tooth-colored dental fillings as white fillings that match the natural tooth enamel. They are made of composite resin materials that fill cavities in a way that blends in with the smile for a less noticeable repair.
Why should I choose white tooth cavity treatment for my smile?
By using composite resin materials to fill areas of decay, white dental fillings provide a more aesthetically pleasing option for repairing cavities. These materials also bond directly to the tooth, adding strength and stability to the repaired area.
Are tooth-colored fillings the only option for cavity treatment?
No, traditional metal (amalgam) fillings are still available as well. However, many patients prefer the cosmetic benefits of white fillings and may choose them over metal fillings. It is important to discuss with your dentist which filling material is best for your specific situation and needs.
Do tooth-colored fillings last as long as metal fillings?
It depends on the individual case and how well they are cared for. Both types of fillings can last many years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Dr. Michel will be able to provide more information on the expected lifespan of your specific filling type.
