Obviously, your good dental health is our first priority, and restoring decayed and damaged teeth to a healthy state is what we do. But close attention to aesthetics makes the difference between a repair that’s simply functional and one that also improves the appearance of your smile.
Dr. Joseph S. Baha is passionate about designing smiles that aren’t just healthy but also look great. Today, a beautiful smile can be achieved without a lot of costly cosmetic dental treatments. One cost-effective option for creating beautiful repairs and correcting minor flaws is tooth-colored fillings.
Advantages of Using Tooth-Colored Fillings
There are two primary benefits to choosing tooth-colored fillings:
One of the reasons we like using composite fillings for aesthetic repairs is that we can closely match the shade of the filling to the color of your natural dental enamel. Dr. Baha carefully shapes the filling material to conform to the shape of your tooth for a repair that’s hardly noticeable.
Preservation of Tooth Structure
As dentists, one of our goals is to preserve the natural structure of your teeth as far as possible. Since we bond composite fillings directly to the tooth, we don’t need a lot of additional room to make an effective repair. The advantage here is that we can minimize the amount of tooth structure that needs to be removed to create a strong filling. Bonding the material directly to your tooth also means that the repair will last longer.
A Cost-Effective Alternative
If you’ve been thinking that your cosmetic problem is going to require costly treatment to fix, we offer tooth-colored fillings as an affordable alternative. Since we can create beautiful, seamless restorations with tooth-colored fillings, they can be used to correct a variety of problems. Using composite fillings, Dr. Baha can:
- Create discreet fillings that blend seamlessly with your teeth
- Fill in chips and build up broken teeth
- Close gaps and uneven spaces between your teeth
- Refine the shape of irregular teeth
- Correct the appearance of severely stained teeth
