NON-METAL TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth-Colored Fillings from Columbus Dental Care Are the Right Choice Instead of Metal Amalgam Fillings When You Have a Cavity, for Safety, Health and a Better-Looking Smile.
Tooth decay is a fact of life for many people, and almost everyone gets cavities at some point in life. If you have a toothache, tooth sensitivity or a constant bad taste in your mouth, you may have tooth decay. Left untreated, a cavity can reach all the way to the tooth nerves and lead to an abscess, or worse.
It used to be that metals were the only materials used to fill cavities – amalgams of silver, gold and, sometimes even mercury, which we now know to be a very toxic metal that has absolutely no business being in your mouth!
Today, tooth-colored fillings made from composite resins provide excellent durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. Dr. Joseph Columbus employs tooth-colored fillings on front or back teeth, and they look extremely natural.(Larger damage areas may require porcelain onlays or crowns.)
Regular dental exams reveal the presence of cavities before they become major problems, so you should see the dental professionals at Columbus Dental Care at least twice a year. It costs a lot less to maintain teeth in the long run than is does to repair them!
