White Composite Fillings
A white, beautiful smile is important to your appearance and self-confidence. Silver or metal fillings can mar your smile and reveal any dental work you may have needed. White composite fillings are the best way to get the cosmetic dental treatments you need without damaging the whiteness of your smile. At Sugar Creek Family Dental, we are happy to offer our patients beautiful composite fillings that will match their natural teeth and keep their smiles looking fantastic.
Metal fillings were used for many years due to their durability, especially for molars that must withstand pressure while chewing. Although these fillings were affordable and durable, they also changed the appearance of the smile. Composite fillings have come a long way, offering an alternative to metal fillings that are undesirable. You can have your teeth repaired with white composite fillings that hide your dental work while keeping your smile looking natural and healthy.
What is a Composite Resin?
Made from plastic and glass, composite resins can be made to blend in to your natural tooth color. Advanced dental technology has created composite resin fillings that are now more durable than their predecessors. In back teeth, when added and hardened layer by layer, composite resin is flexible and long-lasting. This makes the need for metal fillings something of the past. Many people are choosing to replace their old metal fillings from previous dental work with new composite resin fillings. Future dental work is also done using this aesthetically-pleasing material. No more flashes of metal when you laugh, just a beautifully white smile that you can be proud to show the world.
You can have the dental work you need while keeping your smile white and beautiful. Contact Sugar Creek Family Dental today to schedule an appointment or to learn more about composite fillings and our other cosmetic dental treatments to enhance your smile.
