I have old, discolored fillings. What can you do to help?
At Cook Family Dental, we approach any dental treatment with an eye toward protecting your oral health while also taking aesthetics into account. When it comes to basic dental treatments, fillings are the most common and essential to protecting the health of your natural teeth.
With updated dental materials, it is now possible to create dental fillings that match your natural teeth perfectly. In fact, tooth-colored fillings are so natural-looking that you may not be able to tell which tooth you had filled!
Apart from their lifelike appearance, tooth-colored fillings have other benefits. Because composite material can be shaded to match the color of your teeth, it can also be used to repair cracks and chips in your teeth and to fill in small gaps between teeth.
Another benefit of composite fillings is that we only need to remove the decayed portion of your tooth. This is important because we always want to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible.
If you need to have a tooth filled and would like more information about how composite fillings can benefit you, please contact our Birmingham dental office. We will be happy to make an appointment to determine if tooth-colored fillings are the best option in your case.
