At Family Smile Center LLC, we are pleased to offer cosmetic dentistry for our patients seeking to restore their smiles with a natural-looking appearance. One of the ways we accomplish this is by providing composite dental fillings. These tooth-colored, or white, dental fillings are fabricated to blend in with the rest of your smile to give you a discreet and natural-looking restoration. For this reason, composite fillings are perfect for restoring the front teeth.
Using composite resin fillings, our dentists can repair and strengthen worn down, broken, or chipped teeth. Because these fillings–made from strong plastic and glass–are bonded to the tooth, the tooth is stronger than ever because more of its structure is preserved. In fact, the composite resin can be contoured and shaped to provide strength as well as natural-looking results.
Another practical advantage to these composite resin fillings is that they don’t react to temperature. What does this mean for you? You can continue to drink your favorites, whether it is hot coffee or iced tea, and the filling won’t contract or expand to this sudden change in temperature. This helps protect the tooth from fracture.
Caring for a composite filling is the same as caring for your teeth in general. You want to avoid cavities from forming around the filling edges. So continue brushing and flossing every day to eliminate harmful oral bacteria and plaque. Combined with bi-annual dental cleanings and checkups, your tooth-colored filling will serve you well for a long time to come.
