If you get a cavity, we need to address it as quickly as possible.
Once a tooth starts to decay, things only get worse; without treatment, you will likely face discomfort and the possibility of a more invasive procedure like a root canal to save the tooth.
At Advanced Dental Care in Winter Springs, FL, we strive to bring you the highest quality state-of-the-art treatment by staying current with all the latest technology and procedures. In the past, the health of your smile was the primary goal of dentistry. But today, we focus on esthetics as well and use updated materials like tooth-colored fillings to keep your teeth healthy while also enhancing the appearance of your smile.
Tooth-Colored Fillings Add Strength and Beauty
Teeth that are properly taken care of are resilient and highly functional. When considering materials to use to restore teeth, the one that most closely mimics the strength and durability of natural teeth will be the best option.
Tooth-colored fillings are a composite of glass and resin particles that provide a natural, translucent appearance that mimics natural tooth enamel. Our patients also love the fact that the material can be customized to match the shade of your natural teeth for a seamless repair. The result is restorations that are virtually invisible, an important consideration for teeth that show when you smile.
In fact, this material looks so natural that we can use it for cosmetic dental bonding. This is a procedure where Dr. Young uses the composite material to build up chipped or broken teeth, correct uneven spacing between teeth, or completely alter the shape of a tooth to improve its appearance.
Preserving Healthy Tooth Structure
Tooth loss leads to a host of other oral health problems like gum recession and bone loss, so our goal is to protect your healthy tooth structure for as long as possible.
Composites are an excellent solution because to place them, we only need to remove the decayed portion of the tooth. The material is then bonded directly to the surface of your tooth and set with a curing light. With excellent oral hygiene and routine exams and cleanings, your composite filling can last ten years or more.
