A cavity can be small, yet it can spoil your smile. Most people will have tooth decay during their lives. If it happens to you, make plans to visit Accura Dental and our team. Our Colorado Springs tooth fillings:Doctor Chad Murdock on Tooth Colored Fillings Read Transcript
Tooth fillings are important, and we use that service to improve a patient's oral health by putting a great filling back into the tooth where there's been decay or detriment under the tooth. Tooth fillings are all tooth colored. They're natural tooth colors that match or mimic the contour and the shapes of the teeth. So you get a nice lifelike filling. We want to use quality materials that adhere or bond to the tooth, so it minimizes breakdown and decay with proper health care and retreatment from us. Tooth fillings are important to maintain the health and function of your smile.
- Restore the function of your teeth
- Are metal-free
- Protect against more decay later on
- Blend in to look like your natural teeth
Tooth decay can be painful physically and emotionally. End your pain or prevent it now with a visit to our dentist office. To get one of our composite fillings or to find out about our other restorative services, call 719-249-2854 for an appointment. We’re open early mornings and on Saturdays by appointment.
Get Rid of Any Signs of Decay With Metal-Free Fillings
More than 90 percent of Americans will develop at least one cavity. In other words, most people will need a dental filling for two important purposes:
- They restore the function of your teeth, so you can bite and chew without pain.
- They seal the tooth to protect the damaged part against more decay.
Both metal and white fillings do those things. The main difference is that metal fillings can be distracting. In contrast, our fillings are free of metals (including mercury). They are made with a tooth-colored composite resin. This resin can be shaded to match the color of your natural teeth, and it can be polished so other people won’t be able to tell where your filling ends and your tooth begins.
We also offer restorative services that can more easily repair larger cavities, including inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.
We Make Replacing Your Old Fillings Easy
Fillings do an excellent job of protecting teeth. Yet no one has created a permanent filling, so be aware that any filling will need to be replaced someday. If you have old fillings, we will be glad to replace them for you. That includes swapping out your old metallic ones for our tooth-colored, white fillings.
Tooth decay happens, but it doesn’t have to ruin your smile for the rest of your life. At Accura Dental, you can get Colorado Springs tooth fillings that protect your teeth and bring back your beautiful smile. To find out more or to schedule a visit with Dr. Murdock or Dr. Carroll, just call 719-249-2854 today, or schedule an appointment online.
