Can you remember what your teeth looked like before you had your first cavity? If you are like most of us, you got some cavities fairly young, and the ubiquitous silver fillings that were once standard. At Victor H. Burdick Jr. DDS in Littleton CO, there is a better option.
Composite fillings can be made to match the color of your teeth, so even though a cavity has been filled, they’ll blend in seamlessly. They are made of a composite resin material that is strong when bonded to the tooth.
Another benefit is that they may, in the long run, be better for your health. While standard metal fillings are still considered safe by the American Dental Association, some people don’t want them because they contain small amounts of mercury.
At Victor H. Burdick Jr. DDS in Littleton CO, white fillings are standard. People from Ken Caryl, Englewood, and Centennial come to us for complete general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
