Wichita area Dentist explains the benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings

Patients who take good care of their smiles can avoid the development of problems such as cavities and periodontal disease. However, there are times when tooth decay may occur in which patients need to seek appropriate treatment as soon as possible to protect the structure of their tooth. This is when patients may benefit from tooth colored fillings at East Wichita Dentist.

Tooth colored fillings are made of a composite resin, which is fabricated to match the color of the tooth. This ensures that when the filling is placed, it blends in with the natural enamel and is practically indistinguishable from the tooth. Restorations such as this are extremely beneficial as they can help maintain aesthetics.

Traditional dentists use silver amalgam fillings, which are comprised of approximately 50 percent mercury. Mercury, when heated, can release toxins and it is not considered one of the safest methods of restoring a smile. At East Wichita Dentist, we do not place silver fillings because of the controversial use, and prefer to use tooth colored fillings. This helps camouflage areas of decay and maintains the beautiful smile patients work hard to achieve.

Tooth colored fillings with composite resin are just as strong as silver amalgam fillings yet have the added benefit of beauty. Patients who are dealing with areas of decay are encouraged to contact East Wichita Dentist to learn if this method is the best way to address cavities. All patients are viable candidates for these fillings and can enjoy the aesthetic advantages they provide.

People in and around the Wichita area are encouraged to contact East Wichita Dentist to educate themselves on the benefits of tooth colored fillings and other cosmetic treatments available through our state-of-the-art practice. From aesthetics to preventative dentistry, our practice is focused on providing patients with comprehensive dental care to achieve optimum oral health and beauty.

    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
