Tooth-Colored Fillings and Crowns
At Sunshine Smiles, we believe in building a long lasting smile and confidence in every child, which is why we use tooth-colored fillings and crowns.
As opposed to silver fillings (amalgams), tooth-colored or natural white-colored restorations provide an aesthetically pleasing smile and new bonding technologies.Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. Tooth colored restorations add strength to weakened teeth, and the tooth remains in tact and stronger. Also, the resin used in tooth-colored fillings contains fluoride, which helps prevent tooth decay.
Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
Eating a balanced diet
Visiting the dentist regularly
