Cosmetic Fillings: A Perfect Match for Your Teeth
Did you just find out you have dental decay? It’s not something you want to hear, but it needs to be taken care of before it escalates. To treat decay and restore your smile, your dentist will need to remove the decayed area, bacteria and debris. Once your tooth is clean, it needs to be filled. In the past, dentists typically used amalgam (silver-colored dental material) fillings to restore a tooth, but now there are cosmetic fillings you can get instead.
Match Filling to Tooth
Your Cheshire cosmetic dentist, Dr. Erwich, offers cosmetic fillings at his dental practice, for good reason. Many patients don’t want their dental treatments to be visible to others. With cosmetic fillings, your Cheshire cosmetic dentist can match the filling and tooth by using composite resins. Other advantages include the following:
• Cosmetic fillings are relatively strong
• They can be used on front and back teeth
• Tooth-colored fillings can withstand moderate chewing pressure
• It doesn’t corrode
• If further decay occurs, dentist can easily detect it
While cosmetic fillings keep your teeth looking natural, you probably prefer to avoid decay and fillings. For this to be possible, you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Just make sure to follow all preventative measures at home.
• Brush at least twice a day
• Floss daily
• Eat healthy
• Schedule regular dental appointments
