Tooth-Colored Fillings for a Beautiful Smile
Every cavity is different. We at Cayce Family Dentistry understand this, as well as the unique needs of each patient. That’s why we use a wide variety of materials to help prevent further wear and damage on decayed teeth. The first step is to remove the bacteria so they doesn’t cause further problems, after which a hard substance is utilized to seal the hole. Depending on what’s best to keep your teeth in shape, we may recommend amalgam, a strong and safe form of metal that is usually installed on back teeth for added durability. However, we have many other options available. For those desiring no silver in their mouths, we can use a composite resin instead. Tooth-colored fillings or white fillings can also come in ceramic, which is similar to porcelain and can resist staining.
