Silver and gold fillings are a thing of the past! With composite fillings at Polished Dentistry, your new tooth-colored filling will be longer lasting and safer for you health!
Many people could need a filling in their lifetime. A cavity, which causes the tooth to be weakened because of decay, needs to be filled to protect the tooth from further issues. Fillings simply fill the area of the tooth to avoid future damage and decay.
Cosmetic, Tooth-Colored Fillings
In the past, there weren’t many options for fillings. Metal (gold or silver) were your only two choices. Today at Polished Dentistry, we have cosmetic (or composite) fillings made of a plastic material that are tooth colored, giving your smile a much more natural look.
If you do have these older metal fillings, we can replace them with the new, more natural composite fillings. Outdated silver and gold fillings can also leak over time, leading to health consequences. So it is in your best interest to replace them with the new technology!
Advantages of Composite Fillings
Composite fillings have a variety of perks over other options. They are…
- Natural looking
- Almost invisible in your mouth
- A long-lasting solution for small cavities since they are tightly bonded to the tooth
- Have no health dangers
