Remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, the Trinity people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. (Unless, of course, you had been munching Oreos.)
If you are like many Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs adults, you started developing cavities fairly young and started receiving the ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings that were used by Trinity family dentists. As the years went by, two fillings became three. If you didn’t drink fluoridated water, three fillings may have became four. Now when you open wide – others see a mouthful of metal.
Fortunately, Palm Harbor people with silver amalgam fillings can regain the smile of their youth. The replacement of silver fillings with composite tooth-colored fillings is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure available at Prestige Dentistry that can transform a smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.
Composite fillings available at Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor are comprised of a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which creates a natural tooth-colored material. They are strong and durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.
Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. But if you do, you can start off with a white composite filling. In addition to the cosmetic advantages over silver, the preparation requires the removal of less healthy tooth structure. A conservative (as possible) restoration at Prestige Dentistry leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material — your own enamel and dentin.
