Remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? When you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn, you would only see pearly white molar surfaces, unless of course, you had been munching Oreos.
Tossing Out Metal Fillings of the Past
If you are like many Murray and Sandy adults, you started developing cavities fairly young and started receiving the ubiquitous silver amalgam fillings that were used by Salt Lake City family dentists. As the years went by, two fillings became three. If you didn’t drink fluoridated water, three fillings may have became four. Now when you open wide – others see a mouthful of metal.
Saying Hello to the Future with General Dentistry in Murray
Fortunately, Murray 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 Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS. With general dentistry in Murray, you that can transform a smile just as dramatically as an extensive cosmetic dental treatment would.
Composite fillings available at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS in Murray are comprised of a mixture of glass or quartz and resin which creates a natural tooth-colored material. They are strong and durable when bonded to the tooth with adhesive. Furthermore, they look completely natural, so you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart from your other teeth.
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Hopefully, you don’t have a new cavity. 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 restoration at Salt Lake Dental Care leaves you with more of nature’s superior dental material — your own enamel and dentin.
