Tooth-Colored Fillings Restore Damaged Teeth

How tooth-colored fillings from your family dentists in East Ellijay, GA, can save your smile
Damaging your teeth can be easier than you think. Everyday habits like biting on hard foods, grinding/clenching your teeth, or playing contact sports can all cause damage to your teeth. Teeth can also become damaged due to tooth decay. This occurs when the sugar in the foods you eat combines with the bacteria in your mouth to form bacterial acid, a material strong enough to eat through tooth enamel, causing a cavity.
Not too many years ago, the only choice to restore damaged teeth was metal fillings. However, thanks to today's state-of-the-art dental materials and techniques, you can have tooth-colored fillings that actually enhance the appearance of your smile. Here at East Ellijay Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in East Ellijay, GA, your family dentists offer tooth-colored fillings that can save your smiles—read on to learn more!
What tooth-colored fillings can do for you
Tooth-colored fillings use composite, a unique liquid material that can be matched to the color of your teeth. It is placed as a liquid and sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth. Then, the liquid is hardened using an ultraviolet light. The end result is a filling that is virtually invisible and blends perfectly with your smile.
Tooth-colored fillings offer important benefits including:
- Increased strength, because the composite is bonded to your tooth surface using a chemical bonding agent, so your tooth-colored filling will provide many years of protection
- Enhanced beauty, because composite looks just like tooth enamel, so tooth-colored fillings help you have a flawless smile
- Quick results, because tooth-colored fillings can be completed in one appointment
Another major benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are completely metal-free. Imagine, no more metallic taste in your mouth, or unsightly large metal fillings! All people will notice is your beautiful smile!
