Do you feel self-conscious about your old tarnished silver fillings? Do you cover your mouth when you laugh so no one notices them? did you know that after several years old amalgam silver fillings can crack your teeth allowing your tooth structure to be weak? There is no reason to continue living with old silver fillings when you can have natural looking white fillings instead. For the past few years composites have been made with high-tech plastic material very closely matching natural teeth. You can have your black fillings replaced with composite fillings that match the color of your natural teeth. A single “Direct Composite” filling can be done in just one visit to your dentist at Moon Creek Dental. Composite fillings are perfect for small restorations.
To treat dental decay a filling is placed in the area of missing tooth structure after the decay is removed. Thanks to new and advanced dental materials there are more ways to create natural looking smiles. Newer dental fillings consist of a mixture of glass or quartz materials embedded within a resin medium. These compounds, often called composite resins, are used to create a natural appearance across all teeth.
Moon Creek Dental offers two different kinds of fillings: direct and indirect. Direct fillings are placed directly into a prepared cavity via dentist hand instrumentation. Indirect fillings (inlays) can be fabricated on the CEREC digital milling device and cemented into place. Our dentists will determine what the better option is for your particular tooth.
