Dental fillings are restorative materials used to re-establish the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure. Cavities are the leading causes for people to need dental fillings. Cavities cause decay in the tooth enamel where bacteria and debris can flourish, compromising the health of the entire mouth. Traditional fillings have been made of amalgam, but new dental fillings are often created from composite resins that mimic the color and appearance of the natural teeth. Gainesville Dental Group provides complete family dental care to the residents of Gainesville, Oakwood, Cornelia and other surrounding communities. Our doctors are experienced professionals who offer restorative fillings so that your teeth can last for many years to come.
Tooth Color Fillings
There are many reasons why more and more people are choosing tooth color fillings when they need to have cavities repaired. Silver fillings are effective at filling the teeth and promoting future health, however, they are very noticeable in the mouth and many people are finding that they are extremely sensitive to the mercury found in these amalgam fillings. Dr. Vetter and Dr. Gannon are all highly trained to provide dental fillings that will restore the health of an infected tooth. If you wish to have your cavity filling with a tooth colored filling, contact Gainesville Dental Group today.
Natural Color Dental Fillings
Thanks to advancements in dental technology, dental patients who need to have their teeth restored with fillings now have the option of natural color dental fillings. These composite fillings can be used on the front or back teeth, making them a great choice for natural looking results. While optimal oral hygiene is the best way to decrease your risk of cavities, natural color dental fillings are available for those who need dental restoration.
