People who experienced a cavity or two back then usually needed to repair it with metal amalgam fillings. While this treatment offers durable and long-lasting results, the metallic gleam is often obvious and doesn’t promote much confidence in one’s smile. However, with modern dental materials, our team can provide tooth-colored fillings in Muskegon for a more natural-looking solution! Not only will this option address dental decay, but you’ll be free to show off your smile like normal. Reach out to us if you wish to learn more or want to schedule your visit.
Our team can utilize composite resin to create dental fillings for repairing teeth that have been decayed. This option provides a much more lifelike solution, as the material will be color-matched with the rest of your pearly whites, and it’ll be free of any metal, which often consists of small traces of mercury. Composite resin is also biocompatible, allowing it to fuse to your teeth much more effectively for a long-lasting result without needing to take away much from your tooth enamel.
The majority of the time, tooth-colored fillings require only one appointment to be completed. Of course, this will also depend on certain factors, such as the number of teeth affected by decay. You’ll first come into our office so we can evaluate your mouth. We’ll then administer a local anesthetic to keep you completely pain-free while we remove the decayed parts of your teeth. Once we’ve chosen the exact shade to match your smile, we’ll mold the composite resin until it properly fills the area. After we’ve made any final adjustments, we’ll polish your tooth and send you on your way to enjoy your cavity-free teeth!
Tooth-colored fillings come with a multitude of benefits to your smile and oral health, such as:
