Tooth-Colored, Metal-Free Fillings
Services in Cary, Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Apex, and Morrisville, NC
At Sunrise Dental’s four Triangle-area locations, we are proud to offer an alternative to traditional silver fillings — tooth-colored fillings. Unlike silver and amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are inconspicuous and practically undetectable. An added advantage? Tooth-colored fillings are stronger because they are directly bonded to the teeth. Let’s talk about why you might need a filling and the benefits of our metal-free material.
1Why Might I Need A Filling?
Dental fillings are used to repair small areas of damage on the teeth, called cavities. These cavities can be tiny (invisible to the naked eye), or they can grow into larger, more noticeable areas of decay. To prevent a large-scale decay problem, we work hard to catch all cavities as soon as possible, when they are small and easily fixed with a filling (but we have solutions for larger areas of damage, too). We use a specialized cavity detector to locate even the smallest cavities. We can help you make sure your teeth are as strong and healthy as possible.
2Strong, Tooth-Colored Fillings For Cavities
One of the major benefits of mercury-free fillings is that they are closely matched to the color of your teeth. Your dentist will match the composite filling to the tooth being restored, creating a filling that is aesthetically pleasing. Fillings for the front teeth are made with a higher-shine material, ensuring a natural look, while fillings in the back teeth are made to be stronger. In addition to having a better appearance, mercury-free fillings are harder and stronger than traditional, silver fillings, thanks to modern technology. With proper care, these fillings can even last a lifetime! Plus, they are made to fit so naturally and comfortably that you won’t even notice that they are there. If you are looking for a strong, beautiful alternative to the old metal fillings of the past, we have the solution for you. Do you already have silver or amalgam fillings in your teeth? At Sunrise Dental, our dentists can remove them through a simple, quick, and painless procedure, and then replace them with tooth-colored fillings. We do this in the best interest of your tooth and your overall oral health — we are in the business of saving teeth. If you are having trouble with any of your metal fillings, let us help you get the strong, beautiful fillings you need to look and feel great.
