When you have a cavity, a filling ensures that your tooth is preserved from further decay and the risk of infection is minimized. In the past, fillings were primarily completed with dental amalgam, which was effective and economical but highly visible and unaesthetic. Thankfully, we now have a better solution available.
Tooth colored fillings fill cavities while being virtually indistinguishable from your tooth enamel, even in easily visible portions of the mouth. They also offer a number of material benefits that our Smithville, MO patients find favorable, including resistance to structural changes due to hot and cold temperatures, less sensitivity and long lasting integrity that may never require replacement.
To determine whether or not tooth colored fillings are the best option for you, we welcome you to visit our website www.garrisondentistry.com or call 816-532-8778 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Matthew Garrison.
