Discover the benefits of tooth colored fillings in Smyrna, GA

Colored Dental Fillings from Dr. David A. Lamothe, Smyrna Dental & Headache Center
A bright, beautiful smile with healthy white teeth sounds perfect. It’s something we all want. Unfortunately, decay can occur causing damage to the structure of your tooth. Don’t ruin your smile or your oral health with a silver filling. Ask Dr. David Lamothe of Smyrna Dental and Implant Center in Smyrna, GA about the benefits of tooth colored fillings.

What is a tooth colored filling?

Also known as white or composite fillings, tooth colored fillings are made of a mixture of powdered glass and plastic. Composite resin fillings are used to restore decayed teeth. Because of the natural look and safe use of materials, cosmetic dentists commonly use composite fillings to repair cavities.

The benefits of composite fillings include:
  • No metal – The danger of mercury found in amalgam fillings is well known. They are toxic and a danger to your overall health. The metal is also susceptible to expansion and contraction with temperature changes, which could damage the structure of your tooth.

  • Natural appearance – Aesthetically, tooth colored fillings mimic natural enamel and keep your smile beautiful. Fillings are not easy to spot since they are white instead of silver.

  • Longevity and durability – Composite fillings maintain a strong structure by bonding to the tooth. The new filling helps prevent breaking. The material is durable, so the chewing surface is not affected.

  • Less damage to the tooth – Because the composite bonds naturally to the tooth, less of the tooth needs to be removed or resurfaced for the filling placement.

Contact Dr. David Lamothe of Smyrna Dental and Implant Center for more information on tooth colored fillings. We are happy to guide you through the process to restore your teeth. Call the office today and schedule a consultation to learn how to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. 770-432-1344.
