Julie Kavanaugh, D.D.S. is proud to offer composite (tooth-colored) fillings for our patients. Everyone wants to have a smile of which they can be proud. However, many people have fillings that are quite noticeable when they open their mouths.
Fillings are used to protect your mouth from cavities. After removing the diseased parts of the tooth and tissue, we fill in the holes with a substance that seals your tooth. This stops the decay and doesn’t allow more to occur. We can also fill in parts of your tooth that are damaged to reshape your tooth.
Unfortunately, fillings are usually quite noticeable because many dentists use a filling substance that is dark or even silver colored. Luckily for you, we offer composite fillings, which look much more natural.
By using the latest advances in dentistry, we are able to offer fillings that are tooth colored. Before we even get started, we match the color of the filling material to the color of your teeth so that your fillings will not be not visible.
Even better, using tooth-colored fillings is safer. With the latest advances in technology, the new fillings are even stronger than traditional ones. They effectively seal the gap between the restoration and your tooth. They are less likely to decay or break down.
If you are unhappy with your current fillings, we can remove them and give you natural-looking fillings in their place. You deserve to have a smile that you can be proud of, and we will help you achieve that goal!
If you have any questions about composite fillings, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (970) 351-0400.
