Patients in Wichita often ask about the advantages of placing Tooth Colored Fillings

Although many patients take good care of their smiles, problems can still occur. When cavities develop, they must be handled as soon as possible to keep them from becoming more troublesome. Deep cavities can result in infection and inflammation, and may require further treatment such as root canal therapy or extraction. By catching areas of tooth decay before they become a bigger problem, patients can save money and avoid discomfort. They can also maintain their overall oral health by taking action as soon as possible.

When patients visit East Wichita Dentist, they will not receive traditional fillings. Many dentists use silver amalgam fillings to address areas of decay, even after studies have shown the negative effect of mercury toxicity. This is a serious concern, which is why our practice avoids placing silver amalgam fillings. Instead, we use tooth colored fillings.

There are several advantages to tooth colored fillings. These composite resin fillings provide the same effective treatment as silver fillings. However, they are much safer. Tooth colored fillings blend in with the natural tooth enamel to look completely natural and discreet. They do not expand and contract with temperature changes as traditional fillings do, and they are just as affordable.

Patients who visit East Wichita Dentist for the treatment of cavities will enjoy the benefits of composite resin fillings. Not only are they healthier, but they are much more beautiful when placed in the smile. Patients will notice that as they talk and laugh, others will not notice that they have had dental work done. This discrete method of restoring the smile is often chosen over traditional silver amalgam fillings when patients are given the choice.

At East Wichita Dentist, we are committed to assisting patients in not only achieving and maintaining a healthy smile, but doing so in a cosmetic way. Patients in and around the Wichita area can speak with a quality dentist by calling our practice and scheduling a consultation appointment and examination. We are readily accepting new patients into our state-of-the-art practice and can assist all family members in their journey to a healthier, more attractive smile.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
