Here’s why Elite Dental in Fountain Valley prefers composite material for fillings.
Silver amalgam is the other most common type of filling material used in dentistry today, and it’s been an industry standard for decades. However, the one major drawback has always been the silver coloring that sticks out like a sore thumb when you smile.
Composite fillings in Fountain Valley, CA are tooth-colored, and over time will completely blend with the rest of the mouth. This allows Elite Dental to make needed repairs to ensure dental health while keeping your smile as natural as possible.
Older styles of fillings have a tendency to stick out below the level of the tooth, become sharp and jagged, or end up with a dull appearance. Composite fillings in Fountain Valley, CA can be placed and then molded to fit the contour of the existing tooth, creating a seamless appearance. From there, the filling can be polished to match the luster of the teeth around it, bringing everything back to its original shape, form, and shine.
Saving Existing Tooth Structure
Due to the process that we use to bond the composite material, Elite Dental is able to remove less of the injured tooth when performing a repair. Furthermore, that process can also strengthen weaker areas of the tooth that previously would’ve needed to be removed and filled with material.
Doing What’s Right
Every dentist will tell you they care, but Elite Dental is one of the practices that truly takes the time to consider your wants and needs. We use materials that are best suited for the repair needed while doing our absolute best to retain your natural smile and appearance. We don’t want to just fix your tooth, we want to make you smile again!
