Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Our walk-in dental office in Rockledge uses tooth-colored composite resin for dental fillings. Why? There are lots of advantages to composite resin fillings, especially when compared with the silver amalgam fillings that have been in use for most of the history of cavity fillings.
Silver amalgam fillings were never perfect. They could be seen as dark spots on your teeth, making it obvious you’d had fillings placed. They also had a tendency to lose their seal with your tooth. Metal expands and contracts in response to changes in temperature, which can cause these fillings to leak. With composite resin fillings from Premier Walk-In Dental, you can avoid these problems and receive immediate attention for your tooth decay.
Composite resin fillings are tooth-colored instead of metallic, allowing them to blend in with your natural smile and leave no evidence that you’ve had dental fillings placed. But the popularity of composite resin “white” fillings isn’t just about appearance. They are mercury free, making them a healthier option for your smile. They also don’t expand and contract when they come into contact with hot or cold temperatures, so they maintain their seal and don’t leak the way silver amalgam fillings do.
These fillings can be placed in a single visit to Premier Walk-In Dental. Decayed parts of the tooth are removed and room is made for the filling. Luckily, composite resin fillings are more conservative, requiring less enamel removal prior to placement compared to silver amalgam fillings. After we place and cure a bonding agent, the composite resin material is applied, cured, modified for bite fit, and polished. After that, you’re done!
