Are you tired of your outdated and unsightly silver fillings? At DC Dental Spa, we provide tooth-colored fillings that are free of metals and match your natural teeth for a seamless smile!
In the past, teeth that were decayed were typically fixed using metal fillings. These fillings, called silver amalgam fillings, helped restore the health and usability of teeth, but their obvious appearance made them a less-than-ideal solution. Fortunately, decayed teeth can be treated today using tooth-colored fillings that mimic the natural appearance of your own teeth.
Made of composite resin, a durable plastic material, the tooth-colored fillings are far less noticeable and far more attractive than traditional metal fillings. Instead of noticing the glint of metal when you smile or open your mouth, people will only notice your beautiful teeth.
These fillings are bonded directly to your teeth using a chemical process. This ensures that more of your own natural tooth structure is conserved, which often isn’t the case with metal fillings.
With proper care, tooth-colored fillings can last for several years.
Proper maintenance is necessary to ensure your filling remains intact and is protecting your tooth as it should be. During your checkup, we examine your fillings for any damage including unusual wear and address any issues immediately to extend the life of your filling.
If you have questions regarding tooth-colored or amalgam-free fillings or want to schedule an appointment, call us at DC Dental Spa today at (202) 873-1054!
