Rejuvenating Tooth-Colored Fillings in Rowlett, TX
You’ve just heard the news – your son or daughter has a cavity. While this situation isn’t ideal, Dr. Tera Pollock is here to make the treatment process as simple and comfortable as possible with tooth-colored fillings. Unlike amalgam (the dark-colored metal that older patients surely remember), tooth-colored fillings are crafted from high-quality composite resin, which supports and preserves little teeth while keeping them looking completely natural. Contact Rowlett Dental Kids today if you have any questions about this restorative solution, or if you’re ready to schedule a first appointment. We welcome patients from Sachse, TX and other surrounding areas.
Why are tooth-colored fillings superior to their traditional counterparts? We’re glad you asked:
- Composite resin is shaded to closely match the appearance of the tooth’s enamel surface, allowing them to blend right in to your child’s smile once placed. We want our patients to be able to smile confidently, even after treatment!
- Composite resin also creates a direct bond with the tooth’s structure and can be molded more easily to fit the tooth. This means that Dr. Pollock can preserve more of its remaining healthy shape and strengthen it as well, creating healthier results over time.
- The lack of metals in tooth-colored fillings helps teeth stay less sensitive to changes in temperature, which results in more comfort for our patients. This also means that they don’t contain any mercury or substances that may result in allergies.
- With regular checkups and good at-home oral hygiene practices, tooth-colored fillings can last for 10 to 15 years or even longer.
