When you hear the words cavity and filling, your mind probably jumps directly to dark, amalgam fillings that show up whenever you yawn or laugh out loud. We have a better solution here at Marineland. With our availability of tooth-colored fillings, you can avoid the issues that come with amalgam fillings and gain all of the following benefits.
1) Looks Great
The aesthetic benefit of composite fillings is undeniable. Rather than noticing all of the black holes in your smile, friends and family won’t notice a thing when you smile confidently!
2) Strengthen the Tooth
While an amalgam filling runs the risk of weakening your tooth, a composite filling can actually strengthen your tooth. We have to remove less healthy enamel, and the bonding repairs the weakened part of the tooth.
3) Less Risk of Leaks
Amalgam fillings have to be checked regularly for leaks. The metallic filling can sometimes allow bacteria to work its way deep into the tooth, which could lead to the need for a root canal.
When you hear the words cavity and filling in our office, know that you’ll be getting the best possible solution with composite fillings. Contact us today to set up your next appointment for a dental cleaning and exam. We’d love to see you soon!
