Our high-quality tooth-colored fillings are an excellent alternative to traditional metal fillings. They offer great strength and durability while blending in with your natural tooth color.
Dental fillings are commonly used to treat cavities or other minor dental damage. Cavities leave small holes in the teeth, and dental fillings can fill that space and restore the tooth’s structure and integrity. Our dental fillings are made of composite materials which match the look and color of natural teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings can also be used to repair chipped, cracked or broken teeth. The materials that are used to create these restorations give off a translucence providing a natural-looking appearance. In addition to looking great, they are also safer. Metal fillings can eventually release toxins. With tooth-colored fillings, there is no need to worry about that. They are strong, durable, safe and great looking.
You can receive your filling just one visit to our office. First, we will clean out the damaged tooth and remove any decay or existing filling material.
We will then apply the filling substance to seal off any voids. Once it hardens, we will polish and shape the tooth for a natural appearance.
We always recommend that our patients take proactive steps to avoid getting cavities. Brush at least twice daily, floss every day, and if recommended, sealants or fluoride treatments might help too! And by visiting us regularly, we will do our part to keep your mouth healthy! When a filling is necessary, we will do everything possible to make the treatment comfortable and the restoration attractive.
If you have any type of minor dental damage, it’s always best to treat it as quickly as possible. Call your Plantation dentist today to schedule an appointment. We offer extended hours and family scheduling. You can reach our friendly team at (954) 210-4520.
