Friendly Staff, Beautiful Smiles,
Even with diligent brushing and flossing alongside dental check-ups, cavities can still happen. In the past, the only options for fillings were porcelain, gold, or silver amalgam materials. The problem with metal amalgams is their tendency to darken over time, as well as requiring removal of healthy tooth structure to hold the filling.
With advancements in dental technology and materials, our Colorado Springs dental office can now offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings. Not only do tooth-colored fillings blend in seamlessly with your smile, but they also require less removal of your tooth structure to bond with your tooth.
Our office provides a variety of different filling materials to suit the individual needs of each patient; however, most of these fillings are tooth-colored composite. Composite has many benefits, such as blending naturally with the tooth, bonding to the remaining structure, and acting relatively inert in your mouth.
A tooth-colored filling can also be used in dental bonding—which allows Dr. Michael Terveen to change the size, shape, and shade of your existing teeth.
Whether you have a cavity that needs to be filled, or you are interested in filling in gaps between your teeth or changing the size and shape of your smile, we can provide the dental procedure you need.
If you have any questions about tooth-colored fillings or any other type of fillings, please call us at Springs Family Dental today! Our knowledgeable dental staff is always happy to help educate and inform our Colorado Springs patients.
