Do you remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, the people with you could see only pearly white molar surfaces. At Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, we can help you regain that appearance.
If you are like many people, you got your first cavity fairly young, and started receiving the ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings that were used by family dentists. As the years went by, two fillings became three. Then three fillings may have become four. Now when you open wide, others see a mouthful of metal.
Fortunately, 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 Kernagis Dental Excellence that can transform a smile just as dramatically as more extensive cosmetic dental treatment.
Composite fillings are created with a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which results in a natural tooth-colored material. They are extremely durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive.
Hopefully, you don’t have any new cavities. 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 Kernagis Dental Excellence leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material—your own enamel and dentin.
If you would like to improve your smile by replacing silver-mercury fillings, schedule a cosmetic dental consultation with us at Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry.
