If you have had tooth decay, you probably don’t want everyone seeing the evidence when you open your mouth to talk, laugh, or smile. If you need to fill cavities or want to replace your old silver amalgam fillings, we offer tooth-colored fillings at Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS. With tooth-colored fillings, you can hide your tooth decay, protect against further decay, and keep your teeth looking healthy and strong. Think of it as another form of teeth whitening! When you get rid of the metal, your smile becomes whiter and easier to share.
Tooth-colored fillings offer several advantages over silver amalgam fillings. Not only are tooth-colored fillings more biocompatible, but they are also less noticeable and more attractive. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material similar in color and texture to natural tooth enamel. This resin material provides the added benefit of bonding more easily to teeth, to seal and protect your tooth from further decay.
Like any tooth restoration, it is important to maintain your regular Tennessee cosmetic dental visits so that Dr. Dennis Wells can ensure that your restoration is working properly and your teeth are staying healthy. You can help your tooth-colored filling last longer with good oral health habits such as brushing and flossing daily.
