Are you worried about a damaged or decayed tooth? At Magnolia Green Dental Care Dental Care, we specialize in creating strong and natural-looking restorations for your smile. For teeth with damage or decay, we offer tooth-colored fillings to help you bring your smile back to its normal function and look in a safe and effective manner.
Composite fillings, also known as white or tooth-colored fillings, have numerous advantages in the way they restore your teeth and your overall oral health. Some of these are:
- Fillings protect the remaining tooth structure from further damage.
- They look natural as they are made to be of the same color as the tooth.
- They help prevent damage to the nerve of the tooth.
- They limit the damage caused by trauma and decay.
- They make it easier to clean your teeth.
- They help to reestablish the function of a tooth.
The placement of composite fillings begins with the use of local anesthesia to numb the area. After this, any existing decay is removed, and the tooth is cleaned and sanitized. A composite material which matches the color of the tooth is then placed on the tooth. The filling is shaped, buffed and polished to give the tooth a natural finish.
You must continue to follow regular dental care practices in order to keep your teeth healthy and ensure your fillings are long-lasting. This includes proper brushing and flossing daily and visiting our office once every six months for cleanings and checkups.
If you have tooth damage or decay or existing metal fillings that you would like to replace with our composite fillings, please contact the office of Magnolia Green Dental Care Dental Care for a consultation. You can reach our friendly, knowledgeable team at (941) 240-2750.
