LAS VEGAS, NV, February 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Modern advances in dental materials allow your dentist to restore your teeth with a natural appearance. The days of unsightly silver amalgam fillings can be a thing of the past. Amalgam fillings were the old standard that used metal alloys of silver, tin, copper, and mercury to fill cavities and repair your teeth.
, sometimes called composite or porcelain fillings, are comprised of a composite resin material that your dentist can stain to match your teeth. Your restored teeth will then mimic your natural teeth and blend in with the rest of your healthy smile.
White fillings are especially useful and often recommended by dentists to restore teeth toward the front of your mouth so that no one will notice your fillings in your smile.
Advantages of White Fillings
White fillings have many benefits over amalgam fillings. Some of these include:
- Usually only one visit is required to restore your tooth.
- Less of the healthy portion of your tooth is drilled.
- Chemical bonding to tooth structure to provides more support.
- Usable not only to repair cavities but also broken, worn, or chipped teeth
- Less risk of cracks and fractures because white fillings expand and contract less.
Application of White Fillings
Your dentist will bond white or porcelain fillings
to your tooth with adhesive after removing your cavity. The white filling is applied in layers and the dentist will harden it will a special light.
White fillings are durable, but like other materials your dentist uses, they may need to be replaced periodically. Regular visits to the dentist for checkups will help you maintain a healthy mouth and a bright smile.
