Cavities! Anything from dry-mouth syndrome to hard-to-clean grooves and fissures in your teeth can contribute, and everyone can get them, even adults. In the past, every time you had a cavity, your dentist would drill away the decayed area and fill it with a dark-colored metal filling. Not only were these fillings unattractive, rough against your tongue, and often sensitive to heat and cold fluctuations, they also contained Mercury. We all know the hazards of that!
Dr. Tiplea and our team at Allen Dental Studio have a better solution – tooth-colored composite resin restorations for cavities. These beautiful, white fillings:
- Won’t shift with temperature changes
- Are biocompatible
- Feel smooth to the touch
- Blend perfectly into your tooth, so no one will know you ever had a cavity
In fact, these dental fillings are so superior to old metal fillings that many of our patients replace their old metal restorations with natural-looking composite fillings.
