Do you recall what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, others would only see pearly white molar surfaces. Well, unless, of course, you had been munching on Oreos (LOL). Even if you’ve had a cavity (or cavities), our team at Montz and Maher Dental Group in Pearland, TX believe that a tooth-colored filling that matches your natural teeth is a better option than those old-school silver amalgam fillings that many family dentists relied on back in the day.
If you are like many people, you started developing tooth decay fairly young and started receiving those ubiquitous silver eyesores. As the years passed, two fillings became three, then three fillings may have become four. Now when you open wide, others see a mouthful of metal.
Fortunately, people with silver amalgam fillings can regain the smile of their youth. The replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure available at Montz and Maher Dental Group in Pearland, TX that can transform your smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatments. Composite fillings are fabricated with a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which results in a natural tooth-colored material. They are quite durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.
Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity; but if you do, you can get a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic benefits over silver, they require the removal of less healthy tooth structure. If you would like to improve your smile by replacing silver-mercury fillings, please call us at Montz and Maher Dental Group to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation today.
