What your dentists in Venice want you to knowfillings

Do you remember the days when smiles were filled with large, ugly metal fillings? Fortunately, those days are long gone, thanks to tooth-colored fillings! Modern fillings are made to blend in with your smile, creating a harmonious look. Your dentists at Davis & Beyer Dental Health Professionals in Venice, FL want to introduce you to the magic of tooth-colored fillings.

Tooth-colored fillings use a revolutionary material known as composite. Composite starts out as a liquid resin that your dentist can apply and sculpt to match the shape of your teeth. After the liquid composite is applied, it is hardened with a special high-tech ultraviolet light. As a finishing touch, your new filling is polished to a brilliant, beautiful shine.

The color of the composite can also be matched perfectly to the color of your teeth. This means that your new tooth colored filling will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. No one but you and your dentist will even know it’s there!

Tooth-colored fillings are beautiful, but they are also strong. They can also make your tooth stronger by fusing different sections of your tooth together. Tooth colored fillings can help prevent breakage when you bite down. In contrast metal fillings separate parts of your tooth, driving a wedge in between different tooth sections. Metal fillings are more prone to breakage when you bite down. You can lose part of the metal filling, and also vital tooth structure if your tooth breaks.

Tooth-colored fillings are also versatile. They are the perfect choice to fix many of the same issues as metal fillings including:

  • Decayed teeth
  • Damaged or broken teeth
  • Chipped, cracked or worn teeth

If you need fillings, it’s time to investigate tooth colored fillings, a much more beautiful solution to fixing dental issues.
