How Cosmetic Fillings Restore Your Teeth
Cosmetic fillings from your dentist in Woodland, California can give you a beautiful smile
When you think of dental fillings, do you think of large, bulky, unsightly metal fillings? If so, it’s time to think differently! Today’s fillings do more than just restore cavities—they can also increase the beauty of your smile! Dr. James P. Zimmerman in Woodland, CA, offers cosmetic fillings to restore your teeth and give you a great looking smile!
What fillings can do for you!
Tooth-colored fillings use a high-tech liquid resin material known as composite. Composite can be matched to the color of your teeth to create a seamless, uniform smile. It can also be sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth; no more metal smile!
Cosmetic fillings with composite also work differently than metal fillings. That’s because the composite resin is bonded on to your natural tooth structure, strengthening the structural integrity of your tooth. In contrast, metal fillings can actually weaken teeth by dividing a tooth into sections, which can break off when you bite down or chew.
Cosmetic fillings are not just attractive—they can also repair the same dental issues as conventional metal fillings, including:
- Cavities caused by dental decay
- Broken, damaged, or cracked teeth due to trauma
- Worn-down or chipped teeth due to aging teeth grinding
When you choose cosmetic fillings to restore your teeth, you can count on:
- A naturally beautiful appearance that blends with your smile
- No more metallic taste in your mouth from metal fillings
- A stronger filling because the material is chemically bonded to your tooth
