Metal amalgam fillings have been the material dentists have used over the years to restore teeth affected by tooth decay. At Ohana Dental, we choose to use tooth-colored fillings for our patients for several reasons.
One of the benefits our patients love best is that tooth-colored fillings in Midland Park blend seamlessly with their teeth and complement their smiles.
However, there are also other advantages to choosing tooth-colored, composite resin fillings, such as:
- They preserve more of your natural tooth since we don't have to remove as much tooth structure to place them.
- Direct bonding to your tooth adds strength and longevity.
- Composite material doesn't react to temperature like metal does, which helps to reduce its breakdown over time.
Composite resin material is so versatile that our dentists also use it during a procedure called dental bonding to eliminate small cosmetic issues like gaps between teeth, tooth discoloration, fractured or chipped teeth, and size or shape discrepancies. Dental bonding is a quick and affordable way to make cosmetic enhancements to your smile.
If you have questions about tooth-colored fillings in Midland Park, we encourage you to call our dental office at (201) 444-5675 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
