Explore Different Methods For Repairing Damaged Teeth

Do you have damaged teeth? It might be time to consider cosmetic and restorative dentistry! There are multiple effective dental procedures that can repair your teeth, depending on the type and extent of damage.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

In the old days, dentists used metal amalgam fillings to cover up tiny cavities in teeth caused by tooth decay. However, metal fillings are slowly declining in use due to numerous disadvantages.

For one, they can actually fracture your teeth rather than strengthen them. In fact, the most common factor associated with incidences of fractured teeth are old amalgam fillings. When someone eats hot or cold food, the alternating temperatures can create gaps around the metal fillings which leads to cracks in the teeth. Food can make their way into these crevices, which then sits there and rots, weakening the tooth.

Their silvery metallic sheen is also unavoidably obvious, resulting in a less subtle and attractive filling. On top of that these dental amalgams actually contain mercury, which is being phased out in dentistry due to potential health concerns.

Thankfully, newer tooth-colored ceramic and composite resin fillings are safer and more natural-looking, and can help repair and strengthen your teeth!
