Remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. (Unless, of course, you had been munching Oreos.)
Like many adults, you probably started developing cavities fairly young and started receiving the ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings. As the years went by, two fillings became three. If you didn’t drink fluoridated water, three fillings may have became four. Now when you open wide, others see a mouthful of metal.
Fortunately, patients with silver amalgam fillings can regain the smile of their youth. The replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry. It can transform a smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.
Composite fillings are made up of a mixture of glass, quartz and resin. They are strong and durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.
Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages, the preparation of composite fillings requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure. A conservatively-priced restoration at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material—your own enamel and dentin.
