The traditional way to restore teeth from cavities or minor decay used to be amalgam fillings. While amalgam fillings were effective at restoring a tooth’s strength and integrity, they could compromise the look of your smile and potentially spread toxins. At McMillan Family Dental in Meridian, we offer tooth-colored fillings that won’t break down, compromise your smile or release harmful toxins, all while restoring your tooth’s strength and integrity.
The thought of tooth decay or cavities can be a scary proposition for someone with an otherwise clean bill of health. In the past, the general method to treat this issue was an amalgam filling that was made of metal substances. This solution was effective at treating the oral health-related problems and restoring your tooth to its original strength and integrity. However, the metal materials of the filling could be an aesthetically compromising option for some, leaving many people insecure about their smile. In addition to the cosmetic issues involved with traditional amalgam fillings, another problem that often arises with them is the metal substances themselves. The metal in the fillings can corrode over time, releasing harmful chemicals into your surrounding oral structures.
At McMillan Family Dental, you no longer have to worry about any of these issues thanks to our tooth-colored fillings. Our tooth-colored fillings use composite materials that closely resemble the appearance of teeth while restoring your tooth to its original strength and function.
The process of installing our tooth-colored fillings is quick and simple. The entire process can be completed in only one appointment. The procedure begins with our dental professionals taking a measure of the shade of your natural tooth color. The damaged and decayed tissue of your tooth will then be removed and replaced with our tooth-colored filling. We layer the materials of the tooth-colored fillings little by little to ensure that it molds to the shape of your tooth. This also ensures that it won’t compromise your bite. Once the filling is bonded and dried, the normal function of your tooth is fully restored!
If your tooth has minor damage or decay and needs a tooth-colored filling, you don’t have to sacrifice the look of your smile! Our tooth-colored fillings offer excellent durability and strength, and we will closely match it to the color of your teeth.
