Patients of all ages can get tooth decay—not just children. Fortunately, we do offer tooth-colored fillings in Garden City, GA.
During previous decades dentists relied on silver amalgam to treat tooth decay, but this can detract from your smile and make you feel less sure about laughing and speaking in social situations. With our tooth-colored fillings, no one has to know that you even had a dental cavity.
Tooth-Colored Fillings in 31408
We create tooth-colored fillings from composite resin. This material can be colored to match your teeth closely, and it is durable enough to hold up over time. With our tooth-colored fillings, you can enjoy eating and smiling without worry.
This same resin can also bond your teeth. This process means your Garden City dentist spreads the composite over a tooth flaw, smooths it to conceal the issue, and relies on a special light for hardening. The final step is a tooth polish that helps your bonded tooth better blend with your smile.
Some patients opt to remove their silver fillings and replace them with our tooth-colored option, as well.
Preventing Tooth Cavities
Preventive dentistry is your best defense against cavities. Your dentist will provide a dental checkup and professional teeth cleaning schedule, usually twice per year. These appointments lower your risks for cavities, gum disease, and dental infections.
Between dental checkups, it’s critical to brush and floss your teeth twice daily—more often if you are prone to cavities. In this case, we recommend a third toothbrushing session. It’s also important to never go to bed with bacteria and debris on your teeth.
