Would you like to receive a tooth restoration that is indistinguishable from your healthy tooth enamel? You can at the dental practice of Dr. Stephen Harris, your dentist in Farmington, MI. Modern dental fillings blend in with your teeth, strengthening them so they look and feel lifelike.
Your alternatives to metal fillings
Dr. Harris uses white fillings in most dental decay restorations. Left untreated, any cavity may progress into the interior pulp and root structure. Unfortunately, tooth decay can result in tooth loss, too. Today's white restorations look natural and last for many years.
Advantages of white fillings
In his Farmington, Mi, office, your dentist discovers decay on oral examination and X-ray imaging. Your symptoms of sensitivity or tooth pain may alert him to a cavity problem, too. Once diagnosed, he'll numb the area around the decayed tooth and remove the damaged areas.
Tooth-colored fillings require less enamel preparation than amalgam fillings do. That's because these white materials bond directly to your tooth structure, forming a durable and virtually undetectable seam. Your restored tooth will look great.
Here are some added benefits you may not be aware of. Tooth-colored fillings placed by your Farmington dentist:
- Last for years with good oral hygiene habits and a low-carbohydrate diet
- Exhibit a beautiful appearance which blends in with surrounding teeth
- Feature durability and flexibility which withstand the tremendous pressures of biting and chewing
- Cause little to no dental sensitivity to heat and cold
