Back in the day, if you had a cavity, a dentist could easily fix it in just one appointment using an amalgam filling. While this offered a quick and durable solution, there were some clear drawbacks. This treatment always left a large gray mark on a tooth, plus the metal in the material could make it more sensitive to hot and cold-temperatures.
Now, with tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Voto can provide the same fast treatment without any of these longstanding problems.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin material, which is a combination of glass particles and plastic. In addition to being extremely strong, it comes in a variety of lifelike shades, so our team can match it to a patient’s enamel to make the filling practically disappear within the mouth. Even better, because it’s entirely metal-free, it doesn’t lead to an increase in temperature sensitivity as well.
Do you have a pesky cavity or old metal filling that needs some attention? A tooth-colored filling could be exactly what you need, and you can get one in a single visit. To schedule an appointment, contact us today.
