How Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings Make Teeth Strong Again

Find out how our Lawrenceville dentist can improve your smile with tooth-colored fillings.

Finding out you have a cavity isn’t exactly the best news you could have gotten from our Lawrenceville, GA dentist, Dr. Tu Nguyen. We dental fillingsunderstand that having a cavity can be embarrassing and sometimes even painful. But with our cosmetic dental fillings we can easily get your tooth back on track. No one will even be able to tell that you have a dental filling (we promise!). Find out more about tooth-colored fillings and how they work.

Dental fillings can be our go-to when it comes to restoring a tooth after decay. Of course, fillings can also be used over damaged areas of a tooth that are also due to trauma or wear (as long as it’s minimal; more significant damage may require a dental crown).

It’s also nice to know that getting a dental filling won’t just bring your damaged tooth back to life but it can also improve its appearance, as well. In the past, dental fillings were often made from metal, so it was more obvious when people had them. They were big, bulky and unattractive. Fortunately, the dental fillings we offer here in Lawrenceville are superior. They offer strength, resilience and above all a design that looks just like a natural tooth.

Tooth-colored fillings can be made from composite and porcelain. The most popular options tend to be composite fillings because they are able to blend seamlessly into the tooth and are completed in just one visit. Porcelain fillings, on the other hand, do offer a translucency that mimics that of real tooth, also making it a popular choice. Just know that it will usually take more than one visit to get your new filling since it will need to first be made in a dental lab and then sent back to us.

You can protect teeth from cavities by visiting us every six months for dental exams and cleanings. Cavities don’t always present with symptoms, but during these visits we can easily detect them so you can get the treatment you need. Turn to AT Dental in Lawrenceville, GA today.
