Tooth-colored fillings in Greenville
Replace silver fillings with natural-looking fillings for a beautiful and healthy smile
Chances are, most of us have had a filling or two in our life. The essential function of a filling is to repair a tooth that has been damaged by a cavity or tooth decay. New advances in dental technology have led us past traditional metal fillings. At Longbranch Dental Center in Greenville, we offer tooth-colored fillings which are less visible than traditional fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are placed in the tooth very similar to the way metal fillings are, but the difference is the tooth colored composite material is set into the tooth and exposed to a special light in order to harden the material.
Do you have mercury-silver fillings that you would like removed? Our dentists can safely remove your mercury-silver fillings (also known as amalgam fillings), and replace them with natural-looking porcelain crowns and mercury-free composite fillings. Composite fillings are durable and resistant to fracture in small to midsize fillings.
Advantages of Composite Fillings:
- Natural-looking results
- Durable and resistant to fracture
- 100% mercury- and metal-free
If you are concerned about the implications of having silver fillings, please contact the friendly staff at Longbranch Dental Center in Greenville. A staff member will set up a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists to discuss replacing your fillings with porcelain crowns and composite fillings.
